3. CANALS



Just like the name says, a canal is situated right in the middle of the community and is a big plus for people choosing this area. The canals offer tons of opportunity to get outside during all seasons.


In some parts, typically the more luxury parts, of the neighbourhood, you’ll feel like you’re not even in Airdrie anymore, but more of a rural estate community. This is a combination of the huge homes with side entry garages, super wide asphalt roads and no sidewalks and the grassy ditches for drainage, which give even more width to the road. These distinct features are what makes those areas of the Canals so unique! You can’t find streets like that anywhere else in Airdrie.




Driving through the community, you’ll notice how much space there seems to be, in houses or between them, and how well people take care of their properties. There’s definitely a large number of RV’s, boats, and hockey nets, that you’ll see here. Which just goes to show the fun type of people who live here in the area.


Now keep in mind though, not all parts of the neighbourhood are like this. other areas have a large lane homes with carriage suites above the garages, which make for a great income property or home based business. And other areas of the neighbourhood include townhomes, duplexes & smaller single family homes.



A majority of the homes here are a bit older than the other two neighbourhoods on our list, but if you prefer a more classic feel to your luxury home, this could be the place for you!


Being an older neighbourhood, this means you’re very central in Airdrie & puts you adjacent to all the shops and restaurants that line 8th Street. This includes Creekside Crossing, where you’ll find Sobeys, Original Joe’s, and tons of local gems. You’ll also be close to Superstore and Canadian Tire on Veterans Blvd.



2. BAYSIDE


Bayside is known for its one-of-a-kind setting for an active, multi-season lifestyle with beautiful canals and extensive walking paths in the community. Residents here love being able to canoe or kayak on the canals in the spring/summer, ice skate in the winter when it freezes over, and walk or bike around them throughout the year. People tend to be very friendly here and won’t hesitate to say hello or shovel your driveway when it snows.



It’s extremely family oriented here with an abundance of playgrounds and greenspaces for everyone to enjoy. This coupled with a wonderful K to grade 4 school and others close by, makes for an amazing place to raise a family. In my opinion, some of the best parks in Airdrie are right here in the Bay Area, and there’s also an outdoor skating rink.




The neighbourhood does have its own commercial area, Bayside Plaza, which hosts a 7-Eleven gas station, plenty of fantastic local restaurants and shops, as well as different professional offices. Locals especially rave about Sorso Lounge, Tequila and Tacos, and Bubble Tea Brewers.


You’ll find the highest percentage of walk-out basement homes here, which almost all back out onto a water feature. Some will have a walking path behind the home, but the most of the luxury ones back out directly onto the water and even have their own dock to the canal.



We see quite a few homes in here that get over the 3000 square foot mark for 2 stories, or some bungalows that are close to 2000 square feet on one level. And many of the most luxurious homes in the area have been built in the past 5 years. This includes the pinnacle of the neighbourhoods luxury, which is Bayside Island. This grouping of homes is on a man made Island on the canal, and features 12 huge lots, all of which are pie shaped with huge backyards, and will feature some of the nicest homes in Airdrie.



Being on the far west side of Airdrie, does mean that you’ll be a little bit further from the biggest shopping areas in Airdrie, but One good thing about being a bit further away, is that it can feel a it more calm and quiet in the neighbourhood.
