Welcome to Southwood, a southwest Calgary community that offers the space and quiet of the suburbs, the amenities and walkability of an established neighbourhood, and fantastic community spirit.
Excellent transit options, a variety of schools, a library, parks and sports facilities are just some of the reasons Southwood is consistently ranked among Calgary's top 20 best neighbourhoods by Avenue Magazine.
Come check out our rinks, get a coffee and do some shopping, enjoy Rhubarbfest and Winterfest and see what Southwood has to offer.
