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.

Classic power meets innovation on the March front as AVE goes over the back to switch 5-0 in NYC. There's 14 more pages of Van Engelen inside, so don't sweat it; Cyril Jackson talks about skating the streets (and sleeping in them), the Naawwsty Crew rolls deep from ATL to FL; Krooked krushes Korea; the Deathwish team spreads some love on the East Coast and Shane O'Neill has a killer ten-page feature. You heard what he did at Wallenberg, right?
