Aspen Woods is among the younger neighbourhoods after having been established only in 2001. It was annexed to Calgary as early as 1956. It's mainly a residential neighbourhood with some areas utilized for agricultural purposes.
The neighbourhood is a dream for avid shoppers as it is located just along 17 Avenue, which is a major commercial district in Calgary. One will find a wide range of international restaurants and boutiques--from discount stores to high-end shops.
Aspen Woods is just a 15-minute drive to downtown Calgary. There are also a number of golf courses near the neighbourhood. It's also in close proximity to Edworthy Park, which is along the south shore of Bow River.
