Monthly Community Highlight: Garrison Woods
This month’s community profile is the one-of-a-kind and recently revitalized area of Garrison Woods, where I recently sold a cool, New York style loft. A wide variety of living options are available from townhouses to new single-family dwellings to reimagined former military homes, making this neighbourhood incredibly unique.
Located off Crowchild trail and 33rd Avenue SW, the average sale price of a home in Garrison Woods is $644,000. Approximately 2745 people call Garrison Woods home with around half of the residents being families with children. With specialty schools like Masters Academy and Lycee Internationall De Calgary along with Dr. Oakley school for grades 3-12, there are a variety of educational opportunities for growing minds.
Part of the revitalization of the area kept the natural features in mind resulting in more green spaces than most communities in Calgary. Retaining the mature trees, large parks and trails were key and are enjoyed by residents daily in the walk-friendly neighbourhood. You can also visit the military museums while strolling the area for some history in your own backyard.
All the services you would expect from an established community are also close-by with a grocery store, restaurants, specialty shops, medical services and more. Village Ice Cream, in particular, is a local treasure for residents in all seasons.
