Neighbourhood Guide | Airdrie

In the southeast part of Airdrie, just north of Meadowbrook, you’ll find the community of Thorburn. 

One of the more established neighbourhoods in Airdrie.

Thorburn is home to several vast parks, excellent schools and East Lake, which is located on the nortern tip of the community.

The area is just far enough away from Yankee Valley Blvd and the Highway 2 intersection to enjoy peace and quiet, while close enough to take advantage of the amenities. There are plenty of green spaces, parks and pathways in the neighbourhood, but the true park highlight is East Lake Regional Park, which offers a picnic area, a large fire pit, tennis courts and a skating rink. Genesis Place Recreation Centre, the recreational hub of Airdrie during the winter months, offers year-round activities and programs for residents of Airdrie. The centre provides swimming pools with waterslides, dive tanks, gyms, soccer fields, ice skating, and more.

For all your shopping needs, No Frills is located just south west of the community, allowing quick stops for groceries. Save-on-Foods and Kingsview Market not far off. Neighbouring Big Springs is also home to Yankee Valley Crossing Shopping Mall, with access to a Loblaw Pharmacy, Hair Salon, Nail Salon, liquor store and a selection of dining options. Home improvement stores, craft stores, and other services are just down the road.

For families with children, RJ Hawkey Elementary School and Bert Church High School are both within walking distance, with Good Shepherd Catholic School (K-8) and Meadowbrook Middle School only a few minutes away in the neighbouring community of Meadowbrook.
