Thorburn Real Estate & Community Guide

Thorburn is a community along the southeastern edge of the fast-growing city of Airdrie. Known for its young demographic, with a population of 78,748 and only 25 minutes to downtown Calgary, the charming city of Airdrie offers to escape from the hustle and bustle of big city life, with its tranquility and small-town charm. One of the perks of living in Airdrie is its ICE transit system which offers three different routes for commuters looking to escape the busy traffic and icy winter highways.

So Much to Love in Thorburn

Thorburn is more than just a place to own a home. It offers easy access to Edmonton Trail for quick commutes to Calgary, as well as several amenities and plenty of outdoor recreational activities. The neighbourhood is just far enough away from Yankee Valley Blvd and the Highway 2 intersection to enjoy peace and quiet, while close enough to take advantage of the amenities at the crossroads. No Frills, Save-on-Foods, Home Hardware, London Drugs, Michaels along with several restaurants and fast food options are only a short drive away. If you enjoy getting your hair done in a private home salon, there is one in the neighbourhood. Living in Thorburn is ideal for families with children as there are several schools within walking distance. The Good Shepherd School is a Catholic option for grades K-8, while Meadowbrook Middle School and Bert Church High School are public schools. There is also a dayhome in the neighbourhood for working parents of children who are not of school age.  Schools in Airdrie are served by the Rocky View School District and the Calgary Catholic School District, with school options including public, separate, private, and French Immersion. 

What You Need to See in Thorburn

Outdoor Amenities

Nature sits outside your front door with East lake and its abundance of parks and greenspace readily available at the north end of the community. Being one of the most established and friendly-family neighbourhoods in Airdrie, Thorburn is home to four different playgrounds, not including the playgrounds on school property. This provides a close-knit community where children can easily meet and make new friends, and be not far from home during the summer months off of school. 

East Lake Regional Park

The beautiful park boasts endless green space, mature trees, and walking paths ideal for walking the dog, running, biking, or rollerblading. In the summer residents enjoy a relaxing day of fishing, while the viewing docks are commonly used for weddings. Covered picnic areas, a large fire pit (reservable), as well as tennis courts, an athletic park, and an outdoor skating rink in the winter encourage an active and healthy lifestyle for residents.

Fishy Addictions

If you have a hobby of building aquariums and collecting tropical fish, Fishy Addictions is a home-based business that you will want to connect with! Tropical fish are locally bred according to high standards, ensuring quality bloodlines and healthy fish for your enjoyment! Thorburn Real Estate

Genesis Place

A hop, skip and jump away, Genesis Place is Airdrie’s recreation hub and heart of the community for year-round activities including swimming, skating, wall climbing, fitness center, and more. The modern state-of-the-art Centre also offers daycare services, children’s programs for ages 3-12, as well as school year day camps. 

Thorburn Real Estate

The residential neighbourhood consists primarily of single-family detached houses, with various semi detached homes and townhomes as well.. Homes average around $400,000 to start and climb up to $800,000 for a larger, high-end home with modern conveniences.
