Airdrie is less than half an hour from Calgary making it an easy trip particularly from the North end of the City.
Things to do
Iron Horse Park has been operating in Airdrie for a few years now offering rides on miniature (1/8 scale) trains on Sundays during the warmer months. If you have a train fan in your family, a visit to Iron Horse Park is a must.
3. Chinook Winds Regional Park
This park has everything in one space – a spray park, a playground and a skatepark!
4. Check out one of Airdrie’s Indoor Playgrounds
5. Go for a Swim
The pool at the Genesis Centre is just as good (if not better) than Calgary’s leisure centres and is usually less busy.
6. Airdrie Festival of Lights
In December, the Airdrie Festival of Lights is one of the best light displays in town. It is actually more than just a light display and features activities, train rides, skating and more.
Places to eat
Stop in for a cupcake, bar or cookie. Calgarians will drive up to Airdrie just for this bakery so it is sure not to disappoint.
