Greenwood-Greenbriar is a residential neighbourhood in the north-west quadrant of Calgary, Alberta. It is bounded by the Trans-Canada Highway to the south, the Bow River to the north, Stoney Trail to the west and the community of Bowness to the east. Canada Olympic Park borders the neighbourhood to the south.

The community hall consists of a huge main room with a stage, indoor and outdoor rinks, meeting rooms and playing fields. A number of groups and activities make use of the hall, including the Bowness Historical Association, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, satellite bingo, figure skating and hockey. The community Environment and Beautification Committee orchestrates the annual community cleanup. The Bowness community association also hosts a number of special events each year, most notably the annual Bowness Stampede Stomp, which includes a parade and Stampede Breakfast.
Bowness has recently undergone a number of changes. Their new area redevelopment plan (ARP) has led to new flags, cobblestone walks, landscaping and hanging flowers. This sprucing up has attracted a number of new businesses to the area, and the community association is actively involved in continuing this redevelopment, while ensuring that the community retains its distinct flavour.
