The Village Real Estate & Community Guide
The Village gives residents a look at Airdrie’s history. With remodeled homes and heritage buildings, this community combines Airdrie’s past and future. The Village is a stone’s throw away from Edmonton Trail, which connects to Highway 2, and is within walking distance of Airdrie’s downtown and local restaurants. 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 The Village
The Village is aptly named, as it represents Airdrie’s past. An informal walk would lead you past many homes that were built in Airdrie’s infancy, including the home of the first doctor. Its easy to access to Highway 2 makes commuting to Calgary easy, and its established neighbourhoods with green spaces and mature trees mean beautiful views wherever you look.
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. There is also a small private school within walking distance of home.
What You Need to See in The Village
