Springbrook: Celebrating the Past; Embracing the Future
A short 10-minute drive from Red Deer’s city limits will bring you to Springbrook, a true bedroom community where residents enjoy the benefits of city living without the expense and other drawbacks. Around 1,000 people – primarily young families – have settled in Springbrook, and with its proximity to the city, it’s easy to see why.
This cozy community was once home to the Penhold military base, and that legacy continues on today in the Penhold Air Cadet Summer Training Centre and other training camps. Now, the residents of this hamlet primarily work, shop, and play in the surrounding communities of Red Deer, Penhold, and Innisfail. Indeed, the community sells itself on its lower housing costs with all the necessary amenities a short trip away.
Springbrook is also home to the Red Deer Regional Airport, which provides easy travel to Edmonton, Calgary, and other smaller communities in Alberta. With its proximity to Red Deer and to north-south transportation corridors, Springbrook shows great promise for residential, commercial, and industrial growth.
Truly, Springbrook celebrates the past while embracing the future – but don’t take our word for it. Come for a visit and discover for yourself why Springbrook is the perfect place to live, work, and play.
