Bayview is a sub-area of the community of Bayside on the south west corner of Airdrie. Bayview is defined by 8 St SW to the east, 24 St SW to the west and Yankee Valley Blvd to the south. The Canals community lies to the north of Bayview.
Bayview is another phase of this master planned community which includes high and low density multi-family dwellings and single family detached homes on 38 foot, 50 foot and estate sized lots. Prices for new homes start in the low $400s, appealing to first time buyers, young families and empty nesters. Homes with upgraded features are priced in the mid $500,000s.
Like its parent community next door, Bayside architecture continues the nautical theme, reminiscent of the quaint village homes by the sea with front verandahs, sloping rooflines and large, spacious yards. Six kilometres of man-made canals, part of Airdrie’s extensive storm water system, have added value to the communities through which they flow. All manner of water craft are welcome on the canals, such as kayaks and canoes. In the winter, families can skate or play hockey on the frozen water in complete safety.
Bayview offers 8 km of pathways along the canals. Genesis Place on the east side of the city offers indoor family recreation and Woodside Golf Course is just minutes away from Bayview. Shopping is virtually next door at Bayside Village and nearby Yankee Valley Blvd offers a larger variety of stores and services plus restaurants and bars. Cross Iron Mills mega-mall is just 10 minutes south on Queen Elizabeth II Highway with the Calgary International Airport another 8 minutes south of that. Downtown Calgary is a 25-minute commute.
Nose Creek Elementary School is within walking distance. There are a total of seven public, separate and private schools near Bayview.
