With the assistance of the Community Foundation of Swan Valley, the Swan River Royal Purple Elks were able to complete the construction of two Bocce Ball courts. The regulation size courts will provide a recreation and practice area. The courts will also serve as the venue for Swan River to host local, regional and Provincial Bocce competitions for all ages and abilities, notably Special Olympics and Active Living Coalition for Older Adults ALCOA 55+ Games.

The Bocce Ball Court is located in the Legion Park, adjacent to the Rotary Pathway for active living and the exercise area coordinated by Services to Seniors. It provides another venue for all Swan Valley residents for personal enjoyment, physical activity, social interaction, pleasure of spending time outdoors and intergenerational fun. Bring a set of bocce balls and enjoy a fun family game!
