About Sherwood Community
Sherwood is a northwest Calgary neighbourhood that's situated near the north edge of the city. It's bordered to the south by Stoney Trail NW, the east by Shaganappi Trail NW, the west by Sarcee Trail NW, and the north by Symons Valley Pkwy NW. With a unique old-world English countryside design, residents here enjoy beauty in both their immediate and scenic surroundings. With features such as classic street lamps and stunning green meadows, stepping foot into the community feels just like stepping into a storybook. This is part of the draw of Sherwood as a whole and why it has continued to steadily grow since it was established in the early 2000’s.
The stunning architecture throughout the neighbourhood complements the landscape perfectly. Homeowners can choose between several architectural styles, including Craftsman/Arts and Crafts, Tudor, French Provincial, English Cottage, and French Country. Each of these are inspired by homes straight from the English countryside, although they are equipped with the modern amenities inside for comfortable living. Outside of the properties are large lot sizes to accommodate maximum privacy for each homeowner.
Buyers looking for homes for sale in Sherwood are able to find a wide variety of options, ranging from single-family homes to townhouses.

Named the "New Community of the Year" in 2004, prices are on average $592,000, with prices ranging much higher and lower. With opportunities to build custom homes as well, buyers here can make their dream home a reality in Sherwood.
