Silver Springs supports two commercial centres, one at the western end of the primary thoroughfare, Silver Springs Boulevard, and the other just north of the gully. The latter features a pub currently titled the Silver Point, but better remembered by locals as Suds 'n' Spuds.
A Calgary Police Station once formed part of the plaza. A police officer lost his life in a training accident at the station in the early 2000s.
