Denver’s skate park is one of the premiere parks of its kind in the country, featuring 60,000 square feet (about 5,575 square meters) of skateable concrete terrain. Use of the park is free, but you have to bring your own gear or rent it from nearby shops. Adults who want to try boarding, blading or biking on extreme terrain as well as children who are just learning can enjoy various bowls that accommodate all skill levels. There are rails, gently shallow basins and nearly vertical walls inspired by early skaters’ affinity for abandoned backyard swimming pools. Best times for beginners are Saturday and Sunday mornings. Regulars start showing up around 1 p.m.
