Calgary’s Springbank provides right mix of urban country living

Calgary’s Springbank continues to be a haven for residents looking for just the right blend of rural and urban living.

Springbank is a district in Rocky View County west of Calgary, with the Bow River on the north and Highway 8 on the south, stretching west down the back side of Broadcast Hill to Highway 22. First settled in the late 19th Century, it was named for the springs emanating from small coulees running through the district. Many of Springbank’s pioneering families have owned land since before Alberta was a province and have kept it in the family. Springbank is now, as it was then, a very desirable place to build a home in the country.

Rockwood’s Lazy H Estates, is similarly situated on a historic parcel of land, held in the Hodgson family for generations. The Lazy H development is comprised of nine two-acre lots, all with views of Calgary’s spectacular foothills and nearby Rocky Mountains.

Created for families looking for the ideal mix of rural and urban living, Lazy H is close to Springbank’s excellent schools, and the local amenities of Aspen Woods and West Springs. Minutes from the new Stoney Trail exchange, residents of Lazy H will have easy access to the downtown core, while still offering all of the benefits of exclusive estate living. The development also includes a charming natural pond that’s ideal for skating in the winter, and a great place to enjoy and observe a variety of wildlife.
