This skatepark has concrete, transitions, rails and coping all over the place. Downtown Denver, so it's easy to get to and best of all it's free. One of the best concrete skateparks you'll ever see. You either love it or you complain about it, but consider yourself lucky to skate this park. Some of the lines have already been thought out for you by the skateparks planners but that shouldn't stop you from finding your own. The Architerra Group came up with this skateparks design and it was contracted out to Hallmark, Inc. Construction began in March, 2003 and was completed late July, 2003

The street course area makes up the south side of the skatepark, while the entire north side of the park is bowls, from micro to a 7/10 foot kidney. Something for every skill level. To the east, is the newly opened Phase 2 section, huge banked hips surrounded by ledges and rails. Skateboarder's paradise.

Onsite bathroom and water fountain and the pavilion sports a pay phone. Cart vendors come by the Denver Skatepark occasionally with drinks and snacks so bring a few bucks.

In May 2002, skaters convened at the skatepark to brainstorm ideas for the final 10,000 square feet. The last element is a glorified "snake run" with various platforms, ramps, rails and stairs.

In addition to completing the skatepark's master plan, the City and County of Denver constructed a promenade to match the sandstone walls, trees and site furniture found at Commons Park along Little Raven Street. As part of Phase 2, the promenade extends from 19th to 20th Street in front of Skatepark.
