The Parks department strives to provide the community with beautifully landscaped and manicured parks and green spaces.
The Parks philosophy and role is to maintain public green spaces, outdoor recreational facilities and to ensure that a diverse parks system is maintained to the highest possible standard while ensuring opportunities for active and passive leisure that will enhance quality of life for individuals and the community.
The 98 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, please contact the Parks department to submit a customer service request.

The City of Airdrie is updating the Great Places Plan which is the master plan for parks and open spaces in Airdrie.
In October, the Parks team held a two-day Great Places Workshop with residents to get an indepth understanding of the community's needs to help shape parks and open spaces over the next 10 years.
From this workshop, along with extensive research, the team has created a draft master plan. The draft plan will be presented to Council in early 2016.
Please note that due to flooding along one of the Sagewood pathways located between 278 and 354 Sagewood GD the pathway will remain closed until further notice. This area will continued to be monitored daily.
