Come Home to Airdrie, Alberta
From humble dirt roads to an impressive community centre, it’s no surprise that many cow-towners are migrating North to the growing city of Airdrie. What once offered small-town vibes and a break from the busyness of Calgary now provides all of the shopping, amenities, opportunities, and character you’d expect from an established hub.
The best part? Airdrie still feels like a small town at heart.
One of the staples of the community and a place we love to drop in is the Genesis Place community centre. This epic facility includes a fitness centre with cardio and strength training equipment, an indoor track, a 25-meter competition pool with a diving board and slide, a leisure pool with a lazy river, hot tubs, steam rooms, and saunas.
If you haven’t stopped in to break a sweat or take a class (fitness or otherwise!), there’s only one question: why not?
If you’d rather be outdoors, we get it, and it’s another reason we love Airdrie. With proximity to the Rockies, those stunning views will win you over. It typically takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to drive from Airdrie to the heart of the Rocky Mountains, making it a perfect day trip or perhaps just far enough to grab a last-minute hotel and stay the night in Banff.
Nothing quite beats an impromptu road trip, but a quiet afternoon spent in the shade at Nose Creek Park is a close second. Grab your favorite takeout—Sushi Haru, anyone?—and prepare for some of the best people-watching around. If you’re lucky, you’ll see a few dogs as well.
With a growing economy, vibrant community events, and a welcoming community, Airdrie is a city to watch.
