Kings Heights | Airdrie Neighbourhoods

Tucked away in the southeast part of the city, Kings Heights has quickly become a fantastic alternative for people looking for the amenities of the big city with the feel of a small town. Here, you have access to parks, ponds, while also having the convenience of multiple shopping centres only steps away.

The neighbourhood boasts gorgeous natural scenery, with two large ponds surrounded by over five kilometres of paved pathways, making this a popular space for a morning run or relaxing stroll.

Some of the distinguishing features of Kings Heights are the stone archways and decorative style. Members of the community love living in a safe, aesthetically pleasing neighbourhood, and especially appreciate the holiday light show on the pond. Now, I’m not going to tell you which house this is at, but if you come explore here in December you definitely wont miss it!

All I can say is that hopefully this family never moves out of kings heights, because their light show has become so well known here in the community.

Kings Heights is a great choice if you’re looking to raise a family in a socially connected neighbourhood. There is no shortage of kids running around, playing basketball on driveways, or heading to the playground. Kids from kindergarten to grade 5 will attend Heloise Lorimer School which is right in the middle of Kings Heights, kids grade 6-8 will attend Meadowbrook Middle School which is just north of Kings Heights in Meadowbrook, and kids grade 9-12 will attend Bert Church High School, which is just a bit further north than that.There is also Airdrie’s Francophone school right beside Eloise Lorimer, which is a K to 12 school.

Given the amount of students coming and going every day, and with the traffic we get on Yankee Valley Boulevard, traffic can get quite bad in the area around those rush hour times, so that’s just something to keep in mind. On that note, we are only about a year away from the 40th Avenue overpass being complete, which will provide another access point to the #2 highway on the south end of Kings Heights, which should really help ease the traffic issues.

One other con about Kings Heights is a potential poor cell phone connection if you’re on the Telus network. There are spots where you may have poor service in the neighbourhood. Other networks such as rogers don’t seem to have this issue but definitely something to keep in mind. This is just for your cell phone, home internet doesn't have any issues here.

Alright now as for shopping, Kingsview Market is right in the area and has a big variety of restaurants, shops, and small and big businesses. Long drives and long lines to get the essentials aren't necessary here with major tenants such as Save On Foods, Home Hardware, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Tim Hortons and foodies will enjoy several great places to eat such as the Toad ‘n’ Turtle restaurant, Abe’s Diner, or Jam’s.

Yankee Valley Crossing is also just across Yankee Valley Boulevard and a stone’s throw away from the backroads that take you to Cross Iron Mills Mall and Costco, giving you the advantage of avoiding traffic.

The community itself is a large development of various typesof homes. From condos, townhomes, duplexes and single family homes. The builders here included Homes by Avi, McKee Homes, Shane Homes, and Jayman Built. The oldest homes started being constructed in 2005 and building continued all the way up until this year when they completed the neighbourhood.

As for prices, townhouses start at the mid $200,0000s, condos go anywhere from $170,000 to $350,0000 on average, and semi-detached and detached homes tend to go anywhere from $350,0000 to $900,000. Nothing is out of reach here in Kings Heights, as you come across all the different styles of housing at all the price points.

When I think about Kings Heights I think lots of families and lots of amenities close by. If you are searching for quality homes in a great all around location, then this may be the place for you.
