Springston is a small rural Canterbury township on the South Island of New Zealand. It was developed around the mid-19th century.

It has a historic primary school, opened in 1868. Secondary students usually attend the nearby Lincoln High School.

Springston in 2013 had a growing primary school with over 200 students and was about to grow with four new classrooms approved to be built that year. Springston rugby grounds at the Domain hold rugby cricket and tennis for locals and surrounding residents; a newly constructed playground for the kids behind the club rooms could be a handy stop for travellers with children.

Springston Pony Club has notable historic lines in the NZ pony club realm, having started the South Island's famous Springston Trophy in 1976. Its small club rooms and grounds owned by the Crown are well used by many members each Sunday.

Springston has a pub, dairy and a community hall all on Leeston Road.
