Canals Real Estate & Community Guide
Canals is a growing community on Airdrie’s west side that is close to all amenities, Airdrie’s downtown centre, and has easy access to Highway 2 which will take you into Calgary. Airdrie is a fast-growing city just 20 minutes north of Calgary off Highway 2. With a combination of heritage communities and new builds, Airdrie has something for everyone. Its close proximity to CrossIron Mills allow for easy and fun shopping excursions and the ICE transit system means you can commute to Calgary for work without having to worry about the traffic on the highway.
So Much to Love in Canals
The area that Canals covers means there’s so much to love here. Whether it’s the school accessibility (both public and Catholic), the ample green spaces, or the proximity to amenities such as groceries, medical, and entertainment, Canals is the place to be!
Canals are also adjacent to a community garden and orchard so sustainable living has never been easier. The City of Airdrie has also approved an urban agriculture initiative including urban beekeeping and backyard chickens, so the spacious back yards of Canals is the perfect place to participate in urban agriculture.
What You Need to See in Canals
You won’t have to go far to connect to one of the many footpaths and trails that weave in and around the canals. Walk along the water and enjoy views of the wildlife that call Airdrie home, including multiple breeds of ducks as well as a heron. The paths connect you to other neighbourhoods so you can take the day and experience the beauty of nature all throughout the city.
Just across the road, whether you choose to walk or drive is Nose Creek Park which is home to an off-leash dog park, an amphitheater, and a pond where you can fish in the warm months, and skate on during the winter. Every December, you won’t have to go far to see the Holiday Train make its way through town, and you’re also not far from the Airdrie Festival of Lights, one of the best holiday sights in Airdrie.
Bogey’s Pub & Pizza
Bogey’s Pub & Pizza has been the neighbourhood pub for almost 20 years. You can watch the game on one of their 23 HDTVs, shoot some pool, or just enjoy their homemade cuisine. On weekends you’ll be able to have fun with friends singing karaoke or playing Jukebox Trivia. All their food is available for take-out if you want to relax at home with delicious food.
