With gracious villas and restored bungalows, as well as architecturally-designed new builds, homes in the Springlands neighbourhood are much sought after. The area borders the town boundary - lending a country feel - yet is only minutes from the town centre. Springlands has many amenities and facilities to recommend it, whether you are looking to relocate a young family or wanting an easy-care home for your retirement.
Springlands Primary School, established in 1886, has always been held in high regard as a successful and innovative school with people keen to move into the area to meet zone conditions. Other schools in the area include Bohally Intermediate School and Marlborough Girls’ College. Springlands is well serviced by two supermarkets – Countdown and a new Pak’nSave - as well as a post shop, Illusions Hair Salon, AMCAL Pharmacy, garden centre & cafe, medical centre, vet centre and Z Service Station.

A key drawcard in the area is the 24 hectare wooded recreational area, Pollard Park. The park encompasses mature trees, floral beds, a rose display, native rockeries, and a meandering stream. Enjoyed by locals and visitors alike, it is also a popular venue for wedding photography. Pollard Park also features an attractive 9-hole golf course as well as Marlborough’s premier tennis centre, croquet and bocce, and a fitness trail. The adventure playground is a constant source of delight for Marlborough’s younger citizens and their parents.
