Welcome to the Village of Spring Lake
From Spring Lake’s peaceful meadows to it’s abundance of birds that call the lake home, the Village of Spring Lake is a quaint, tranquil community nestled along the shorelines of Spring Lake, Alberta. Known for its natural beauty and the wonders that have been preserved and protected over many decades, it has been described as a Nature Lover’s Oasis.
It is the perfect place for enjoyment and relaxation for all ages. So when you hear the call of the loons, take a moment to sit back enjoy it and all that Spring Lake has to offer.
We are extremely excited to share with you some information about our
Village and the history that made our Village the place it is today.
We have retyped some of the original articles for you to read and
included them in this portion of the website as pictures for you to view.
