Springbank, Rocky View County, Alberta.
Located on the west edge of Calgary, about a 20 minute drive from downtown, the close knit community of Springbank in Rocky View County enjoys breathing room, natural scenery, and Rocky Mountain views.
Once (and still) a rural community composed of farms and ranches, Springbank has evolved over the past few decades into the Calgary area’s premier destination for estate homes and acreage properties in a country setting. In the process, Springbank has become one of the wealthiest and most coveted postal codes in Alberta and across Canada.
Harmony will be the first master planned community of its kind in the area, introducing a refreshing diversity of housing – from Estate through Townhomes and Multifamily to Seniors Residents. Harmony will also be the first community concept to provide such a comprehensive scope of amenities – a planned 140-acre lake and wetland area, Mickelson National Golf Club of Canada, a 35-acre active village centre, and modern employment campuses – not just for the residents but for welcoming the entire Springbank community at large.
Easy access to the city and the mountains makes Springbank the perfect balance of lifestyle. In addition to its natural assets, Springbank is also highly respected for its school system, which is under the jurisdiction of Rocky View County.
The area is served by three public schools
- Elbow Valley Elementary School (K-4),
- Springbank Middle School (5-8)
- Springbank Community High School (9-12). The high school shares a location with the ‘Springbank Park For All Seasons’ which provides sports facilities including skating and curling, a gathering area for festivals, and for Equestrian clubs.
Private schools in the area include:

Stretching west to Highway 22 and north to the Bow River, Springbank is connected to Calgary by both the Trans-Canada Highway and Lower Springbank Road (north of Highway 8). Rocky View County surrounds the City of Calgary in a horseshoe shape to the west, north, and east, and includes such communities as Springbank, Elbow Valley, Bearspaw, Bragg Creek, and Cochrane Lake.
