This neighbourhood was built on military barracks that were still in place until the late 1990s. That's also how Garrison Woods got its name. The neighbourhood is among the newer communities established in Calgary.
To honor its military roots, you will find various military themes all over the neighbourhood. The local parks also have various military monuments.
For accessibility, Garrison Woods is just near 14 Street and Crowchild Trail. These major roads allow residents to easily access downtown Calgary and anywhere else they want to go. The neighbourhood is also bordered by Marda Loop, which features many restaurants, cafes, shops and other unique establishments.
