Airdrie is getting a new regional park and the planning has already started. The ultimate goal is for it to be a place for the community to gather and have fun together.
In 2021 the City of Airdrie acquired 185 acres of land in the northeast area of the city for $10.44M, with a plan for it to be turned into Airdrie’s newest regional park. The park will be designed for sports, events and cultural activities and will have unique features that will draw visitors from all over the city and surrounding region.
Planning will start soon and take roughly a year to finish. The park will be built in stages, starting with paths and rest places, then baseball diamonds and rectangular fields, and lastly other amenities.
The land will not be accessible to the general public during this time. While park planning is being done, it will still be leased to farmers and ranchers to keep the property in use.
At the November 21, 2022, council meeting, the theme for the park was approved as a place for organized sports, and much more.
The plan is to include:
- quad diamonds
- open event space with an outdoor stage
- several rectangular fields
- a natural area with trails and interpretative features
- a campground to support sport tournaments and on-site events
