Garrison Woods Amenities and Services

Garrison Woods has an ample amount of amenities and services needed for extended comfort readily accessible in neighbouring communities. These areas are so close it makes walking an option during warmer seasons!

On the north end of Garrison Woods you will find Marda Loop, a well known business district in Calgary’s inner city with over 100 businesses in operation. This area is renowned for its small, one-of-a-kind businesses, which know customers on a personal basis and provide them with exceeding levels of service.

Another exciting aspect of Garrison Woods is the fact that it is directly west of Mount Royal University. MRU has recently upgraded itself from college status and are constantly upgrading their faculties and educational programs to accommodate more and more students.

On top of these two exciting characteristics, Currie Barracks is developing their own European style retail and commercial district. You might find yourself having to choose between a few different shops simply because there are so many! Crowchild Trail, 33rd Avenue SW, 14th Street SW and Glenmore Trail are a few of the routes immediately available to residents. Calgary’s Military Museums are also located within the community (a Top 5 Best Calgary Museum!)
