Awesome, I happen to know that there was a great skateboarding landscape architect who felt this was one of the best projects he could work on. He definitely poured his passion for skating into this project. I'm trilled that you are enjoying the new facility.
Best Skatepark - 2008
Readers' Choice: Denver Skatepark
Skateboarders weren't expecting much from Commerce City when it announced plans to build a new concrete skatepark. After all, bigger metro-area cities have consistently blown good intentions (and public funds) by relying on non-skateboarding landscape architects who produced designs that functioned better in CAD than in real life. Fortunately, Commerce City went with top-notch skater design/build outfit California Skateparks, and when the free outdoor facility opened last fall, it became one of the best on the Front Range. Most notable in the park's 20,000 square feet is a clover-shaped bowl attached to a massive, twenty-foot-tall capsule. Street skaters are offered a plaza-style section with stairs, rails and ledges, all capped with grind-easy angle iron. Though the circular layout seems more about overhead aesthetics than a coherent flow pattern, it's totally sick compared to the one at Green Valley Ranch.
