Springwood is a suburb that has 17 parks covering nearly 9% of the total area. The population of Springwood in 1996 was 9,738 people. By 2001 the population was 9,084 showing a population decline of 7% in the area during that time. A high proportion of people in Springwood are in the baby boomers generation compared to population proportions in the surrounding local government area.  Springwood is a significant activity centre in the region, with a major bus station, two hotels, a 24-hour McDonald's, two state primary schools, a state high school, a campus of Calvary Christian College, a public library, three shopping malls, ambulance, fire and police stations and many places of worship (including Church of Christ, Uniting and Seventh-day Adventist churches). Most commercial activity in Springwood is centred on the "town centre" in the north-west of the suburb along the Pacific Motorway. An increasing amount of commercial development is also occurring in the south-eastern parts of Springwood, an area unofficially known as Chatswood Hills. The remainder of the suburb is primarily middle-class residential areas.

History

Before colonisation, Indigenous Australian people from the Yugambeh and Jaggera language groups inhabited the local area.  Springwood was laid out as a development when the South East Freeway to Brisbane was planned, at one end of the proposed Freeway. This was expected to be finished in 1972, but was not finished until 1985. The development was named after the pineapple plantation of Brigader Sam Langford, slightly north of town. Until September 2006, Springwood was home to an IKEA store, before moving to a new location in Slacks Creek, directly across the Pacific Motorway from Chatswood Hills.
