Park View is country living at its best, with all the advantages of living in the city. Because we are an unincorporated area, homeowners here pay Scott County taxes. We enjoy services such as underground public utilities, sewers, snow removal by Scott County and the water is provided by a separate entity known as; Park View Water Company.

Our community takes pride in being “family oriented,” and has much to offer for all ages. At the center of the community is Neil Armstrong Elementary School, which is an award winning “FINE” (First in National Education) school. The great majority of students in kindergarten through sixth grade walk to school, many of them along the sidewalk located in several parkways. These sidewalks are designed for quicker access to the playground and safer walking to the school.
The North Scott School District is one of the top school districts in Iowa. Neil Armstrong is particularly proud of their fine teachers and strong programs in music, art, and athletics. The PTA is very active at Neil Armstrong, with many Park View residents volunteering their time to help at the school. There are a variety of clubs in which to participate. Some of these are Lions’ Club, Women’s Club, and scouting programs. Park View prides itself in offering many outstanding sports opportunities for children, which are organized by the Park Board. There are numerous T-ball, softball, baseball, basketball and soccer teams, which are coached by community volunteers.
