Wildwood is a community in the South West area of Calgary. It was developed in the late 1950's and is conveniently located just north of Bow Trail.
Most of the homes are single family bungalow type that have been well maintained and upgraded over the years.
The community is a neighbour to Edworthy Park, a well enjoyed area by many Calgarians. Families can spend an entire day at the park enjoying the picnic areas, the hiking and biking trails.
Some come to the park to allow their dogs to run around freely, as there are certain areas in the park that are deemed as "off leash".
There is a lot of history with respect to Edworthy Park, however the people who come to the park are more interested in the beauty within it and the relaxation of being in a forested area with a river flowing through it.
All this natural beauty within close distance to downtown. A quick drive along Bow Trail is all that is between this community and the city centre.
There is excellent bus service either directly to downtown or the LRT (Light Rail Transit) which is just slightly south of the community on 17th Avenue SW.
Due mainly to the natural boundaries, this is a community that does not have traffic crossing the neighbourhood to get to another community.
Excellent schools in the community and the surrounding communities.
Shopping at Westbrook Mall is convenient as it is located on Bow Trail at 37th Street SW.
