Chalk up another public concrete skatepark for Arizona with lights until 11pm, free, no helmet or pads required, no park monitors lurking and no BMXers allowed. I did see one BMXer eye up the bowl, but a local skater who wants to preserve the coping and the smooth concrete for the futeure said "Don’t worry about the police kicking you out. I’ll so it myself".

WHAT: Round walls, hips, smooth concrete and good trannies throughout. Cody Boat and Colby Carter seen frequently ripping the park.

GOOD: Lots of pro’s travel out there during the winters to skate this park and like the park.

BAD: Lacks a bit of creativity on the design aspect. Other than that who am I to say? You will have to stop by and skate it for yourself. Spines are so 80’s. Kidney bowl needs pool coping.

PADS: No

ADDRESS: 17800 N 40th St, Phoenix, AZ 85032, USA

HOW TO FIND IT: From Phoenix take the 10 freeway take Squaw Peak parkway/51 North exit Bell Rd. and make a right. Take a left on 40th and the park will be on the left hand side, right after the High School. Beyond the swimming pool.
