About Southwood

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 a great place to live.

Come check out our rinks, get a coffee and do some shopping, enjoy Rhubarb Fest and Winterfest and see what Southwood has to offer.
