The Elbow Park Community Centre offers a creative playground, two hockey rinks, a pleasure skating rink, a baseball diamond, basketball courts and tennis courts. Many communities belong to the Elbow Park Minor Hockey Association, and these teams make use of Elbow Park’s rinks. The rinks are also used in conjunction with the Inter Community Grass Roots League which offers residents a low key chance to play hockey.
The Glencoe Club administers the tennis courts and offers lessons and proshop services. Skating and art programs are offered for community children. The Elbow Park residents Association also serves as an advocate for community concerns, including those relating to traffic issues, development, and Elbow River environmental concerns.
