This Garrison community was once part of the old CFB in town and much of that character is preserved. This area now occupies the former PMQ's, private married quarters servicing the military base until 1998. Many large mature trees remain on site after redevelopment. The architecture reminds us of simpler times as well.
People are glad to pay a premium for modern living spaces in a quaint setting. You can expect that here in Garrison Woods.
One part of this community as nearly all condominiums. Expensive condos! And it's worth it. This one is truly a sight to behold.
