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.
In the years that followed World War II, Edmonton experienced considerable growth. Returning veterans started families, the baby boom got under way, and the discovery of several major oilfields surrounding the city were all contributing factors to a tremendous increase in the city’s population.
As a consequence, the demand for housing units increased dramatically. People were interested in subdivisions with large lots arranged in crescents and cul-de-sacs. Newer styles of housing, schools, and recreational facilities and relatively homogeneous land use were also important.
Greenfield is a neighbourhood that met these needs. Single-detached houses are the major structure type in Greenfield. Most are of above-average size and face quiet curvilinear streets. Greenfield is bounded on the north by a collector road and on the remaining three sides by arterial roadways.
The school and recreation sites are centrally located. A neighbourhood shopping plaza serves the needs of convenience shoppers. Additional retail and service businesses are located at the nearby Southgate shopping centre. The road network and public transit connections allow residents good access to destinations on Edmonton’s south side.
The neighbourhood was named in honour of Herbert Greenfield, leader of the United Farmers Party and premier of Alberta from 1921 to 1925.
Greenfield residents benefit from the close proximity to Whitemud Drive freeway to the north that crosses the city from the east and west. Residents are also a short drive from Century Park LRT station at 111th St. and 23 Ave. and the Southgate LRT station to the north providing easy public transit access to downtown and northeast Edmonton on the Capital Line. The Edmonton Transit System also maintains good bus service in the neighbourhood. For routes and schedules see: http://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/edmonton-transit-system-ets.aspx ) Greenfield residents are close to the extensive bike and walking trails in Whitemud Park to the west.

Why I Live in Greenfield
Jane Lee has lived in Greenfield since 2011. As the president of the Greenfield Community League, she describes other Greenfield residents as very friendly. “I decided to get involved in the community league to help others get connected with each other and to help create a vibrant centre within our neighbourhood,” she said. Jane and her husband and their golden retriever enjoy the easy access to many open spaces. “Greenfield is a family oriented neighbourhood. It's also within a close distance to many amenities and has great green spaces in and surrounding the neighbourhood,” said Jane.
