Greenfield is a family-friendly community bounded by 40th Avenue to the north, 111th Street to the east, 34th Avenue to the south and 119th Street to the west. Located in the southwest subdivision of Kaskitayo, this all-in-one neighbourhood first took root in the early 1960s and continues to be a popular choice among home buyers today.
Did you know? Greenfield was named after Herbert Greenfield, Alberta’s fourth Premier (1921-1925).
Greenfield is known for its quiet cul-de-sacs and single-family homes. Most properties in the area are considered above average in size (but not in price), featuring ample square footage and large lots. And although most homes in the neighbourhood were built over fifty years ago, many have been renovated to include the latest features and upgrades. Best of all, real estate in Greenfield remains extremely affordable, with an average listing price of just $454,000.
Did you know? Greenfield’s development resulted from a vast increase in Edmonton’s population – due to both the baby boom that followed WWII and the discovery of several oil reserves near the city.
