The Parks department strives to provide the community with beautifully landscaped and manicured parks and green spaces.
The 80 kilometres of paved pathways available within Airdrie offers residents the opportunity to enjoy living a healthy and active lifestyle. The City also offers many cultural, outdoor recreation and natural features within the parks spaces.
The Parks department works diligently to ensure all of our areas are well maintained, washrooms are stocked and outdoor structures are clean.
However, from time-to-time there may be an area that is overlooked. If you come across a green space or park that is in need of attention contact the Parks department to submit a customer service request.
Application for access to public land
Does your home back onto a pathway, park or greenspace? Are you thinking of landscaping your yard?
Follow the process outlined below before you begin work of any kind in and around these areas.
- Call the Parks department and advise staff what your intentions are.
- Complete the application for public land form.
- A Parks crew leader will complete a pre-inspection by visiting the site and taking photos of the area before the project start date. This will ensure that the homeowner is not liable for the cost or responsibility of repairing existing damage if there are any areas already in need of repair. *Any damage to the area as a result of the landscaping project as well as damage done by the landscapers or contractors accessing the area will be at the homeowners' expense to repair.
- Contact Parks to advise when the project is complete. The crew leader will then complete a post-inspection, including photos of the new site.
- If no new damage is noted, the process is complete.
Pathways & storm ponds update
Please be advised that due to the current weather and the thawing and melting occurring in and around Airdrie, the Parks department is requesting all residents to use caution when using the pathways.
For safety reasons, due to the rising water levels occurring some sections of pathway with water covering them have been barricaded off.
The Parks department is also aware that the storm pond levels are high and these storm ponds are being closely monitored.
Should you come across a pathway that appears to be a concern, please contact the Parks department at 403.948.8400.
