One of the communities I work a lot in is West Springs. Located in the southwest quadrant of the city, West Springs is bordered by Springbank to the west, and Cougar Ridge to the north; the western extension of the community is called Wentworth. Offering a variety of well-appointed homes, West Springs is only a 15-minute commute to downtown Calgary.
