Acreages For Sale: The Rural Community of Springbank

Located immediately west of Calgary in the municipal district of Rocky View County, Springbank encompasses the Bow River to the north and stretches down to Highway 8 in the south. The limits of Springbank extend west past Broadcast Hill to Highway 22. Pioneering families intent on settling Alberta’s wild west settled Springbank in the late 1800s and many have maintained generational land ownership since then. Springbank was named for Springbank Creek which flows southeast to the Elbow River. Springbank’s rich heritage as agriculture and ranching land has evolved to include many residential acreage communities developed to make the most of the majestic sunset vistas to the west and the beauty of the meandering springs of this district's lesser coulees.

For buyers seeking the benefits of acreage living within an existing community, consider The Acres, Aventerra Estates, Harmony, West Bluff, Rodeo Ridge, Emerald Bay, Pinebrook Estates, Grandview, Devonian Ridge Estates, Morning Vista, and Stonewood. And keep your eyes open for exciting new developments like River Edge and Bingham Crossing.
