The Parks department oversees various areas of parks development and construction throughout the city. The majority of open space development currently taking place in Airdrie is in new subdivisions. There are also several redevelopment and enhancement projects being undertaken by the City.

Some highlights of the plan include:
- a vision and principles for park development

- action strategies

Airdrie is now part of “The Great Trail” (Trans Canada Trail), created by Trans Canada Trail and partners in 1992. The trail is now 24,000 kilometres of multi-use recreational trail and is the world’s longest recreational trail. When completed, the trail will stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific and to the Arctic Oceans, linking over 1,000 communities and 34 million Canadians. Millions of Canadians and international visitors are now using the Trail. Airdrie's part of the trail connects to Irricana’s road network and Rocky View County’s proposed route.
