Imagine living in a community purposefully built with a focus on enjoying the outdoors as much as living indoors.

Cobblestone Creek, a picturesque new community by Melcor Developments in southwest Airdrie, is just that.

“We acquired the land in the early 2000s and have meticulously planned Cobblestone Creek since 2015,” explains Erin Cripps, marketing and building relations co-ordinator at Melcor.

“Our vision was to foster a sense of belonging and pride in the neighborhood, prioritizing quality of life, environmental sustainability and community cohesion.”

One of the standout features of Cobblestone Creek is its recent addition of pickleball and sports courts, unveiled to the community in September 2023.

“We showcased the opening with a show home event, underscoring our commitment to providing recreational amenities,” Cripps says.

“The courts, comprising two tennis and four pickleball courts, serve as focal points for residents to engage in friendly competition and foster connections.”

The community boasts a wealth of green spaces and amenities, including basketball courts and the unique ability to flood the pickleball and tennis courts in winter, transforming them into a skating rink.

“Our emphasis on parks and amenities aligns with our goal of enhancing residents’ quality of life,” Cripps says.

Indeed, parks and green spaces play a pivotal role in promoting physical activity, mental well-being and community interaction. Additionally, they contribute to environmental sustainability by providing habitats for wildlife and mitigating stormwater runoff.

“We envision Cobblestone Creek as more than just a residential area; it’s a vibrant hub where residents can socialize, participate in events and forge lasting relationships,” Cripps adds.

The architectural charm of Cobblestone Creek further underscores its appeal. With a focus on traditional home styles such as Prairie Brownstone, Tudor and Craftsman, Melcor aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and tranquility.

“We want residents to experience the relaxed lifestyle of quiet creekside living, reconnecting with nature amidst modern comforts,” Cripps explains.

As Cobblestone Creek continues to evolve, Melcor remains committed to its residents’ satisfaction and well-being.

A Homeowners Association (HOA) has recently rolled out in the community. The HOA will ensure the maintenance and management of shared amenities in the community are maintained for the benefit of residents.

“We’re proud to have sold over 300 lots in Cobblestone Creek to date, with construction progressing according to plan,” Cripps says.

“This community appeals to a diverse range of buyers seeking a blend of natural beauty, recreational opportunities and a tight-knit community spirit.”

Celebrating a century of excellence, Melcor has crafted thousands of homes across the province, with Cobblestone Creek representing their latest endeavour in creating vibrant and sustainable neighbourhoods.

With its emphasis on parklands, amenities and recreational facilities, Cobblestone Creek stands as a testament to Melcor’s enduring legacy of creating communities where families can thrive, bond and create lasting memories.
