Average Listing Price
"Average Listing Price" is the average list price of all residential properties listed on the MLS® System in a given neighbourhood and includes condominiums, townhomes and single family detached homes. This is a market figure only and variations may not indicate a change in the price for any particular property.
Part of the land that makes up the Duggan neighbourhood was once owned by J. J. Duggan, a pioneer and mayor of Edmonton’s early rival, the City of Strathcona. Large-scale development of the area began in the 1960s and peaked during the 1970s, but a small amount of development, and later redevelopment, persisted from 1980 onwards.
Duggan’s subdivision reflects the popular neighbourhood design elements of the 1960s. Higher density residential land uses are located along major roadways and near the central school and park sites. Single-detached houses dominate as the major structure type, and are grouped around the center of the neighbourhood and along curvilinear streets. Apartments supply just under 30 percent of all residential units, while semi-detached homes and row housing account for over 10 percent.
The neighbourhood’s commercial element is also centrally located. Duggan has good traffic circulation on three sides, and the road network allows residents good access to a variety of destinations of Edmonton’s south side, especially with its easy connections to Whitemud Drive on its northern border and Calgary Trail on its eastern border.
Duggan residents benefit from the close proximity to the Whitemud Drive freeway to the north, crossing the city from the east and west and Calgary Trail/Gateway Boulevard , heading north and south. The neighbourhood is also only a few minutes from the Southgate LRT station at Southgate Mall or the Century Park LRT station further south. The Edmonton Transit System maintains bus service in the neighbourhood.

Why I Live in Duggan
Ken Greenway’s family moved to Duggan around 1998, just before their son was born. “We had rented for years and wished to find a home of our own,” said Ken who is also active with the Duggan Community League. “We looked at numerous neighbourhoods with a keen eye on finding a mature neighbourhood will trees, green space, schools and yet close to major commuter routes as I worked east of Edmonton. Duggan as a central location close to shopping amenities, excellent commuter access, yet a mature neighbourhood with large trees and quiet streets was our choice.” Ken said his family enjoyed their first home and around 2010 moved within the neighbourhood to another home on a slightly larger lot. Ken says he likes the many local parks, playgrounds and sports fields as well as the numerous cul-de-sacs many with central green spaces that make for a wonderful place for walks or bike rides. The community’s diversity of people, opportunities and design makes Duggan a wonderful place to call home, he said.
Sports, Recreation and Parks
There are two parks in Duggan, the largest is Duggan Park, the location for Duggan School and the Duggan Community Hall at 3728, 106 St. (Nearby Rideau Park, adjacent to D.S. Mackenzie and Rideau Park schools, is also an important local sports facility.) Activities hosted by the Duggan Community League include Scouts, Girl Guides, Brownies, dancing, bridge, playground activities, lighted outdoor hockey arena (summer and winter), ice skating area and soccer. The neighbourhood is well known for hosting the annual Duggan Mother’s Day Soccer Tournament. First held in 1999 and attended by 13 teams, the tournament now attracts as many as 175 teams from throughout central and northern Alberta and into British Columbia. The other park is Charles Anderson Park offering open green space. Other recreational activities can be found at the nearby Confederation Leisure Centre at 11204 43 Ave. It features a salt water pool, whirlpool, steam room and a fitness complex that includes an indoor ice arena, outdoor tennis courts, sports fields, and a running track.
