Coming soon: a new canvas for your throwies and burners
The sport court at Nose Creek Park that is currently hosting Airdrie’s Street Art Gallery is being redeveloped to fulfill a community need for a pickle ball court.
To encourage the tradition of aerosol art in Airdrie that has added vibrancy to Nose Creek Park over the years, the City will be erecting new panels dedicated to aerosol art at Highwood Park, Nose Creek Park and East Lake Regional Park.
Aerosol art workshop
A workshop with aerosol artist, 'Toner,' will take place on June 16 from 1-3 p.m. to launch the new panels. Interested in attending? Click here.
The new panels will be located here.
The existing panels will be taken down the week of May 28 and panels will be available for pick-up from June 8 until August 30 at 21 East Lake Hill.
History of Airdrie’s Street Art Gallery
At the request of Creative Airdrie, The Street Art Gallery officially opened to the public in 2014 and was informally managed by the City of Airdrie and Creative Airdrie. Although the gallery was intended to be a temporary space for street artists, the space operated for four years with great success. The site was also host to several ARTember workshops where ethical and safe street art was promoted and practiced by the community.
The City of Airdrie operates and supports a number of community partnership programs:
- Nose Creek Watershed - The Nose Creek Clean Up was an event previously organized by the Nose Creek Watershed Partnership. Recently, the Partnership has changed their focus and is no longer organizing stewardship activities.
Free wood mulch
Every spring at 15 East Lake Hill, there will be a pile of bark mulch available for Airdrie residents at no cost and is not intended for commercial use. Please help yourself!
Mulch created from the pruning of local trees by the City’s Parks department is being provided free of charge to Airdrie residents for residential garden use. Mulch content varies and the City of Airdrie makes no representation of the quality of the mulch, or that it is free of substances which may be toxic to plants, animals, and/or humans.
- Staff is not available to load mulch.
- Load, transport and use at your own risk.
- Wear appropriate personal protective equipment such as gloves while handling mulch.
The City of Airdrie offers the community a bench & tree memorial program.
Upon the Parks department's approval, a bench or tree may be placed in one of Airdrie's parks, open green spaces or along a pathway in commemoration of a loved one.
For further information and pricing, see the Memorial Guidelines.
