CKE Community Activities


CKE Tennis

CKE has some of the best courts in the city. There were refinished in 2021 and we want you to come out and play!

At this time we do not allow bookings or rentals of the Courts by CKE residents or anyone else. The 3 exceptions are: the schools in CKE neighbourhoods may rent the Courts, we book the Courts off for group lessons, and we book the Courts off for the CKE Pickleball Drop-In Program & related events.

CKE Pickleball

This action-packed sport combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping-pong. Players will use solid paddles and a wiffle-like ball, while playing on a badminton-sized court. It is a low-impact, high energy sport and the rules are very easy to learn.

City of Calgary – All Wheels Skatepark

The CKE Skatespot offers a safe and active social space for people of all ages to connect with others, exercise in, and practice their skill! Obstacles include a quarter pipe, curved ledge, ledge/manny pad with wedge, flatbar with landscape flat gap, bank, and a flat ledge.

To help keep the park safe and clean, a locked supply box equipped with cleaning and maintenance supplies is located at the park. This initiative relies on “key holders” from the skate community to help keep the park clean and free of debris. If you are interested in being a key holder, please contact Calgary Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts (CASE) – chair@calgaryskateboarding.com.

This park is owned and operated by The City of Calgary. Please contact the City of Calgary at 3-1-1 with any issues, concerns, or questions.
