#2 – Access to Elbow River Parks & Pathways

Garrison Woods real estate allows homeowners to live near the Elbow River. It is one of two waterways in the city apart from man-made lakes, providing leisure and recreation like you'll find nowhere else in Calgary.

Residents can reach the Elbow River and the parks and pathways that run along its embankments just a few blocks to the east. Walking over may take you 15 to 20 minutes from the furthest point away in the community, or pop in the car and be there in an instant.

Some of the parks you'll have quick-and-easy access to when living in Garrison Woods:

River Park

This beautiful 21-hectare park features paved pathways and designated off-leash areas. In the summertime, you could say it's a social club, where dogs and people meet new friends or visit old ones.

River Park was recently redeveloped to include a large off-leash area for dogs to run around and play with each other. It also features a dog water fountain where a man's best friend can catch a drink between playtime.

Altadore Park

Altadore Park is another stunning green space just west of Garrison Woods homes for sale where you'll find open fields, river access, picnic benches and lots more.

Varying elevations in this park make for some spectacular views. Access to the other side of the river (or Riverdale Park) is made possible by a recently built bridge that acts as a focal point for water activities, picnics and leisure around the river.

Sandy Beach Park

Unfortunately, there's no sand or beach at Sandy Beach Park. Don't worry, this beautiful park has lots else including a children's playground, fenced areas and paved pathways that lead down to the Elbow River's embankments.

Sandy Beach Park has many picnic areas and shelters, playground areas, firepits, BBQ stands and even a seasonal dog water fountain, along with public bathrooms.

Weaselhead Flats Natural Area

Don't forget about the river pathways just east of Garrison Woods real estate that head north towards downtown and south towards the Glenmore Reservoir.

A bit further past the reservoir you'll find Weaselhead Flats Natural Area, a beautiful wetland that the Elbow River meanders through upon entering the city of Calgary. Many locals love Weaselhead Flats Natural Area for the diverse species of birds and other wildlife while others use it purely for fitness activities and dog walking. Nonetheless, this natural area truly is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city not far away from home.

If you live an active lifestyle, I think you could see why living in Garrison Woods would be advantageous to say the least.

#3 – Diversity of Real Estate

From million-dollar infills to new construction condos to townhome developments, Garrison Woods has a little bit of something for everyone!

You'll find most multi-family homes in the community's north end because that's where Marda Loop is. Zoning for these areas is different than in the southern region, which consists almost entirely of duplexes, townhomes and attached / detached single-family properties.

The new and resale real estate portfolio in this community provides an excellent opportunity and wide range of options for buyers from all walks of life.
