About Garrison Woods
Garrison Woods is a community of approximately 3,000 people that is bordered on the west by the Crowchild Trail and on the east by 14th Street. To the north is the Marda Loop, a bustling business hub, and the south and surrounding areas board the community of Altadore proper. Because Garrison Woods is one of Calgary's newest developments, it has only recently become recognized as a mini-neighborhood in its own right.
If you're intent on visiting open houses in the Garrison Woods triangle you'll find that many of the designs are modern and that you'll have your choice of style, square feet and lot size. However, unlike some of the surrounding areas, as much as 40% of the units in this neighborhood are rented.
The nearby university means that many residents of this area skew younger, meaning you'll see many students and young professionals in the area. And because Garrison Woods is bordered by Crowchild Trail, residents will be able to get downtown in just 10 minutes by car, or they can use one of the many convenient public transportation options.
