Spring Lake is a neighborhood in the Huffman community which stretches along the northerneastern edge of the city, across Edwards Lake Road from Roebuck, between Alabama State Highway 79 (Center Point Parkway) and Interstate 59, and mostly to the south of Dry Creek.

It was named for the 500-acre Spring Lake Farms estate owned by developer Robert Jemison Jr off of Springville Road at the headwaters of Five Mile Creek. Jemison sold 270 acres to Emmett Ware to be subdivided into 94 residential lots in 1947.

Huffman Academy and the new Huffman High School are both in the Spring Lake neighborhood, as are the Springville Road Library and Eldorado Park.

The Spring Lake Neighborhood Association meets on the first Thursday of each month at the Springville Road Library. Wiley Short is the neighborhood president.
