Southwood is a community in the South West quadrant of the city of Calgary.
The community was developed in the late 1950's and consists of single family homes, condos and townhouses.
Great location as it is sandwiched between Southland Drive SW to the north of the community and Anderson Road SW to the south. It is just east of 14th Street SW and on the west side of McLeod Trail.
The neighbours to the north include Haysboro, to the south is Canyon Meadows, to the west is Braeside and to the east, separated by McLeod Trail is Willow Park.
Being close to major routes such as Southland Drive, Anderson Road, 14th Street SW and McLeod Trail, provides great access to downtown and other areas of the city.
There is an LRT (Light Rail Transit) station in the south eastern part of the community close to McLeod Trail.
Shopping in the neighbouring communities. However, both the Chinook Centre and South Centre malls are a short drive away.
Schools can be found in the area and in the neighbouring communities.
