Erin Woods is a community in the South East quadrant of the city of Calgary.
Development started in this area in the early 1980's and consists mainly of single family homes and town homes.
The community is well positioned between many major expressways, and just southeast of the community of Dover.
It is situated south of 17th Avenue, also known as International Avenue, due to the diverse ethnicity of the shops and restaurants along this stretch of this avenue.
Along this route you can find restaurants or coffee shops with Vietnamese, African, Latino, Greek, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours.
It sits in between 36th Street SE to the west and 52nd Street to the east, with Peigan Trail to the south. These major routes provide excellent acces to the downtown core, the airport and out to the mountains in Banff.
Shopping can be found on 17th Avenue SE./International Avenue, but Marlborough Mall, is located northeast of the community.
Schools can be found in the community and surrounding neighbourhoods.
