The community of Woodside is located in North West Airdrie, just south of Veteran’s Blvd, west of 8 St NW, east of Woodside Drive NW and north of 1 Ave NW. The centerpiece of this superb community is, of course, the Woodside Golf Course built on beautiful parkland with its excellent fairways and meticulously kept greens. It may be cliché, but Woodside truly has something for everyone, from senior’s residences, townhomes, affordable single family homes to estate homes valued at $1 million plus. You don’t have to be a golfer to appreciate living in this pristine community.
There is an active association for seniors who call Woodside home and 50-plus communities with snow removal and lawn care. Estate homes backing onto the golf course offer 4,000 square feet and more of estate living with more affordable family homes just blocks away. Despite the disparity in dwelling types, the average cost of a home in Woodside is $492,000, and homes are on average 15 years old.
While the golf course is certainly a highlight of Woodside, the location of the community also makes it attractive. There is shopping along 8 St NW and Veteran’s Blvd and downtown Calgary is just 25 minutes south along Queen Elizabeth II Highway. The Airdrie Curling Club is just minutes away as is the Plainsmen Arena. Genesis Place with indoor fitness facilities including a field house, pool, waterslide and dance studio is the envy Southern Alberta.
Airdrie has several medical and dental clinics, with a fully equipped hospital just 15 minutes away in Didsbury.
Many families choose Airdrie because schools are plentiful and close by. Woodside elementary school students attend Ralph McCall School Elementary or Our Lady Queen of Peace School. Just a five minute drive to the east is Airdrie Middle School and George McDougall High School.
