Sparwood is situated in the South-Eastern corner of BC. In fact, if you're visiting us from the east, we're the first community in the west (of BC, that is). Sparwood is a family-friendly Rocky Mountain community nestled in the heart of BC's Elk Valley. Our community offers exceptional lifestyle opportunities just out the back door that include world-class skiing, fishing, hiking and hunting or simply spending time in the great outdoors.
Sparwood was founded on a coal mining heritage and we're still the same hard working families and great folk that make this one of the world's great places to live. Our community is home to many things to do and see. Whether you're staying to play, coming to work, or simply passing through, be sure to take the opportunity to discover and experience some of the many activities and things to do that make our community special.
