Charlie-Mae Marlatt, an Okotoks resident of three years said, "I like living in Okotoks because it is family oriented, family focused, has a small town community feel and it is 10 to 15 minutes away from the city."

A little bit country

Communities of Bearspaw and Springbank perfect for country living

Nestled on the outskirts of Calgary's city limits in Rocky View County are the communities of Springbank and Bearspaw.

These two communities offer a quiet setting with the big city nearby. The name for Springbank originated from a creek that runs through the community, known as Springbank Creek. The community started off as agricultural based and in the
1950s started to attract rural residential living.
