The Bounce Games Park
A popular spot for year-round exercise and connection
Urban basketball park with a side of public art attracts visitors from across the city and builds vibrancy on a future development site.
Bringing an active vibe to Calgary's colourful East Village
The Bounce opened in 2019 at 4th Street and 8th Avenue SE—the future development site was the perfect temporary activation location surrounded by East Village’s beloved heritage buildings and the bustle of the Central Library. This free outdoor play space offers a full-sized basketball court and ping-pong tables plus ground-level snakes & ladders, four-square and hopscotch boards—all set to a colourful backdrop of murals by MAUD (Calgary duo Kathryn Pearce and Tanner Hamilton) titled Found Home.
A creative, engaging use of undeveloped land
The Bounce brings activity and energy to an otherwise vacant and idle city lot—a great example of CMLC’s brand of creative placemaking.
A year-round neighbourhood gathering place
With its vast variety of fun and active uses, The Bounce provides a vital place for East Village residents to gather and connect.
