More About Elbow Valley And Area


Springbank is the designated community for schools for Elbow Valley. With our unique proximity to a number of Calgary communities, however, there are also multiple private school options nearby.


With Westhills, Aspen Landing and Discovery Ridge shopping centres all within a few minutes drive of Elbow Valley, you really are closer than you think to all of life’s amenities.


The community association (Elbow Valley Residents Club i.e. ‘EVRC’) collects monthly fees to maintain and operate the community infrastructure and amenities and to provide essential services while protecting the natural integrity of Elbow Valley.  Fees vary by property.  To inquire about fees, please submit a request through the Contact Us form.


With rural living, there can sometimes be a fear that common utilities may be harder to access. In Elbow Valley, our residents enjoy the comforts of urban living with access to water, ‘city standard’ waste and other important services.


With four options in our backyard, you can take your pick of whether you want to hit the links at Elbow Springs Golf Club Glencoe Golf & Country Club, Pinebrook Golf & Country Club or River Spirit Golf Club.


Elbow Valley is governed by an elected, volunteer, Board of Directors that provides fundamental guidance and has decision-making authority for the community.  Day to day management is carried out by full-time operations and administrative managers, along with support staff where and when required.
