Jensen Real Estate & Community Guide
Jensen is a well-established, older neighbourhood in Airdrie. Surrounded by amenities, and in the middle of a tri-school area, this community has parks, schools, and easy access to not only Airdrie’s downtown but 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 allows 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 Jensen
Jensen is removed enough from Airdrie’s downtown that you can enjoy the peacefulness of the area, but close enough that you can access anything you need, including medical care, groceries, and restaurants. There is a community centre that includes an over-50s club and a curling rink in Jensen’s backyard.
There are three schools in the area, dubbed the tri-school area, including a secondary school with a French immersion program, a French elementary school, and a French middle school.
