Established in 1999 as a Calgary neighborhood, Springbank Hill comprises of a handful of subdivisions including Springborough, Summit of Montreux, Springbank Hill, The Slopes, Anatapi, and Spring Valley. The community has a population of over 9,000, with the majority of residents being high income and the vast majority of the properties being single detached housing.

Public school students attend Glamorgan elementary and junior high before finishing their studies at Ernest Manning senior high school, which commenced classes on September 2011 right here in Springbank Hill. Catholic school students are assigned to the nearby John Costello elementary, St. Michael/St. Gregory junior high, and Bishop Carroll/St. Mary’s senior high school. There is some leeway to which school a Catholic student may attend depending on where they are situated in Springbank Hill as it encompasses such a large area.
Offering panoramic views of the Foothills and Rocky Mountains, the Glenmore Trail is located at its southern border which grants residents a major roadway to allow easy quick access to other parts of the city. The Glenmore Trail guides residents out to an interesting collection of recreational activities at the Glenmore Reservoir and Fish Creek Provincial Park, as well as provides access to a more commercial area filled with shopping centres, restaurants, and boutiques beginning at 5th street. The Springbank Hill community association offers many events year-round for families in the area to take advantage of including a Stampede Breakfast, a Halloween party, and an Easter Egg Hunt. This is in tandem with a committee that oversees adult and senior programs in the area as well as a sports committee that targets the youth.
Understandably, transportation is a mutual concern for residents and the city as Springbank Hill is located outside of the more populated areas of Calgary. Luckily, residents have access to the 69th Street station of the West LRT right in their own neighborhood. There are also nearly three dozen stops set up throughout the community on behalf of Calgary Transit, to further accommodate residents.
With much untapped potential and continual developments unfolding every year, Springbank Hill is a neighborhood desired by many Calgarians. Offering an array of activities, amenities, and attractions at a healthy distance, Springbank Hill is a collection of properties designed to appeal to those concerned with maintaining their roots in the larger cityscape.
