I walked by a condo here in Toronto the other night that had a pretty cool amenity on its ground floor; a half-court basketball hoop. There were floor to ceiling windows facing the street and the double-height space was adjacent to the weight room/gym. There were half a dozen guys playing a pretty intense game inside and I thought it was pretty neat. It has to be one of the cheapest amenities to add to a building and requires virtually no maintenance. Plus it strikes me as one of the better social amenities to let residents actually meet and get to know their neighbours.
