Garrison Woods Real Estate Information
Located on the east side of Crowchild Trail is the community of Garrison Woods. Unlike other communities in Calgary, Garrison Woods didn’t start out as a residential space. It was actually used as a military base in the 1930s but was abandoned 60 years later in the 1990s when the military base was shut down. This is when developers by the name of Canada Lands came along and noticed the huge opportunity in the land. Soon enough, they were under a full redevelopment where they started from new while keeping the original charm in the streets, trees, and even parks.
