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 consists primarily of a mobile home park, Greenwood Village; maps since the early 1980s have shown proposed streets south of the mobile home park and north of the Trans-Canada, but as of 2008 no construction has actually occurred.

It is represented in the Calgary City Council by the Ward 1 councillor.
