..working with the
community in pursuing a vision for Spring Creek Mountain
Village (formerly Restwell Trailer Park) in Canmore,
Spring Creek Area Redevelopment Plan was approved by the
Town of Canmore in September of 2004. The time-frame for
the redevelopment was anticipated at ten to fifteen
years. In the elapsed five years since project approval,
local developer and third generation owner, Frank
Kernick has driven ahead with the first stage of
redevelopment at Spring Creek.
Now well into The Spring Creek Area Redevelopment Plan
and operating under the name of Spring Creek Mountain
Village, the former Restwell Trailer Park lands have a
long history dating back to the first redevelopment of
the area by the Kernick family in the late 1950s.
Previously, the Kernicks operated the property as The
Canmore Dairy Farm.
Stage 1 Progress
Today Stage 1 of the project is well underway. The
property has already seen massive transformation with
site restoration, road-access improvements including
bridges, a state-of-the-art rail crossing and a road
roundabout installation on Bow Valley Trail. Area
beautification initiatives including pedestrian path
development and architectural landscaping are ongoing
priorities. The first three multi-unit buildings have
been completed incorporating geo-thermal technologies
and other "green" construction techniques as well as
employing natural exterior materials associated with the
mountain surroundings. With successful sales of the
first residential units, the transformation of the
community at Spring Creek Mountain Village is now taking
Stage 2 Rezoning
As of October 2009, part of the site continues to be
operated as a lease land mobile home community.
Developer and owner Frank Kernick, is continuing on an
orderly re-development path with the recent submission
of the Stage 2 rezoning application to the Town of
Canmore. A number of Stage 2
supporting documents are available for download in
PDF format from this site.
