Garrison Green Real Estate Listings and Information
Located in the southwest of Calgary, Garrison Green is a relatively new community only established in 1998. It can be found south of Mt. Royal Gate, north of Glenmore Trail, west of Crowchild Trail, and east of Richard rd. Even though is it still considered an inner-city community, it is family-oriented with a handful of parks and green spaces. With a wide range of homes including large and small single-family homes, townhomes, and a seniors’ community center, the community is one of three that replaced Calgary’s old military barracks. Due to this, there are several war monuments and statues paying tribute to those who have served in the Canadian military during the two World Wars.
Public school students are designated to attend Jennie Elliot elementary, A.E. Cross junior high school, and Central Memorial senior high school. All three are located in neighboring communities – not a long commute at all. Catholic school students attend St. James elementary, St. Michael junior high, and Bishop Carroll senior high school – all located within a five minutes’ drive.
