Utah Skate Parks

Fairmont Skatepark

by Colin Howells

I wonder what Fairmont park was like before they built the skate park. I wasn’t aware it even existed. I imagine a whole lot of walking going on. Mom’s walking their kids, kids walking their dogs, and dogs, well, just walking.

Now, with the addition of the skatepark it is a thriving burst of life young and old. At any given time of day you can find a handful of skateboarders, bikers, rollerbladers and ah yes, the razor scooters. Everyone seems to love this park, the young aspiring street pros, the old school bowl riders and everyone in between. For the street kids there are drops, mannual pads, ledges (good coping), a euro gap, a pyrmid section with a box and rail over the top followed up with an 6 ft quarterpipe. Oh yeah, how could I forget the man sized handrail, not too long, but tall enough to leave more of a man or less of a man. For the tranny guys, they have two bowls, a big deep peanut shaped bowl ranging from 5-10 ft, (not for the weak) and a large snake bowl. Both of these bowls are super fun and flow very well. The snake has extensions, a seat in the deep end and really good coping. It ranges from 6-8ft. There is something for everyone at Fairmont, and is a local favorite. You can always find a good group of really cool, friendly (and very talented) skateboarders there. Fairmont also has lights on untill 11 p.m, Props! Although, they have been known to stay on longer, just lookout for the cops! Restrooms and Water, Lights! Bikes allowed. Located at Fairmont park in Sugarhouse on 9th East and 2340 South.

Rose Park

by Colin Howells

Salt Lake City’s most recent skate park addition. This park is designed for the slightly more advanced skaters. In other words, there isn’t anything there that is small for beginners, with the exception of the one foot mini quarterpipe. Although, the mini qp is one of the most popular features there, and provides hours of fun for grinds, stalls, slides and watching your friends slip out super hard. The street oriented park does have a sweet 2 sided 8 ft quarterpipe that provides speed for the rest of the park and is also good for big airs off the hip. Other features include a good sized euro gap, a big banked hip, a pyramid with grind box, a launch to ledge and rail, 3 good sized 5 stair sets, 2 handrails with matching hubba ledges parallel to them, manual pads, and curved grind ledges that are really fun. Most of the time this park is completely deserted, and is a nice escape from the crowds, but it will get pretty packed on occasion. The nice thing about Rose is that everything is spread out far enough that when it does get busy there are not too many problems. Rose park also has lights on until 11 p.m, if they stay on later don’t worry about the cops, because out there, they are your friends, and the least of your worries. Restrooms and Water. Lights, and bikes allowed. Location- 1400 North 1200 West .

Jordan Park A.K.A 9th and 9th

by Colin Howells

I have had more debates over this skate park than any other. Back and forth we bicker to determine if this park is fun or not. To me the debate is over, and always was. THIS IS PARK IS SICK! Being one of the oldest parks in Salt Lake it has held strong for many years. It has a super fun mix of street and transition with never ending flow. There are no big handrails or perfectly shaped pyramids, and no sets of stairs, but there are a whole handful of small super fun features. Start from the top and hit the triple rail line, or do some super fast smooth grinds along the endless hubba curbs. Drop into the snake bowl section and pump for days. This bowl is one of the best for keeping your speed up and riding continuosly. The snake section has 2 spines, quarterpipe extensions, big steep banked hips, a nice hip launch, rollers and bowls. It is hard to ride this section with more than one or two people in it, so this park is definitely better to hit when it’s not crowded, like in the mornings or before school gets out. Often times their will be big packs of bikers there which kind of dampens the session, but they are usually pretty cool and let you get your turn in. If you avoid the crowd 9th and 9th is just plain fun, and will always be one of my favorite parks. For the kids who love this park you know what I’m talking about, for all you haters I hear longboarding at the U is sweet. Location- 9th West and 1000 South. No lights. Bikes allowed, Restrooms and Water.

Taylorsville skatepark

by Colin Howells

T-ville park located on Redwood Road and about 4800 South is a pretty fun little park. It has a really fun double sided grind ledge about a foot and a half high. The transitions at this park are really mellow so good for beginners, these include a one sided bowl, two quarterpipes, and a couple of banks. The park does have some more advanced features, these are mainly for the street kids. There is a large four block with handrail, a stairset the same size as the 4 with small hubba ledges going down the sides. These hubbas are super fun to do tricks over off the big drop. There are also several ledge drops and smaller grind ledges for the young street skaters. The one thing this park has which no other park in the valley seems to have is a long flat bar on flat. Not sure why the flat bar lost its popularity, but T-ville keeps it real for that. The city had planned on doing improvements to the park a while back, they even closed it off for a minute, but there has yet to be any needed improvements to this park. There is water and restrooms. No lights or bikes.

Midvale/ Copperview

by Colin Howells

Built in the summer of 2008 Copperview is one of the newest parks in the Valley. With approximately 14,000 square feet Site Design has done it again. The street course here is so much fun. With ledges, rails and stairs galore, this park is the street skaters dream. All of the rails are big fat and square which makes learning grind tricks really easy, and the ledges all have really good coping for super fast ledge tricks. The street course includes a eight stair drop with a flat ledge that goes out to a big 7 or 8 foot drop, a small euro gap with a flat bar next to it, a pyramid hip with a huge curved ledge going around the far corner of the park, plenty of hubba ledges of all different sizes, a long 3 stair set, a big 3 block, flat ledges, and a really fun steep unique quarterpipe. These are just the things I can think to write down, but it has plenty more of everything there and if you like street skating you won’t be disappointed. For you bowl riders this park does have a really fun big bowl section. It includes extensions, rolling hips and an over vert portion that scares the S#!% out of me. It is a really fun bowl and pretty much the only transition this park has. No lights here, but also no bikers! Restrooms and water. Copperview is located at 8446 S Harrison St. which is roughly 400 W.

Richard L. Guthrie (Cottonwood Heights)

by Colin Howells

Oh the Guth. This is a great park to bring your kids to, but is also fun for all levels of riders. With really smooth transition the tranny section has fun back and forth spine transfer capabilities with a nice rolling pyramid on the side. The whole park is bordered with a grind ledge with super smooth coping. It also has a bunch of small grind features like a pyramid grind box, two long down slant rails and hubbas. There are plenty of kids that skate this park every day and love it, they have their lines down and kill it. For the outsider it can definitely keep you entertained for a couple of hours, but all the kids might drive you crazy before that. The drawback to this park is its bizarre hours. There was an agreement made that the park would not be open during school hours for the elementary school located right next to it. That means on school days it is not open until 3:30 p.m. All other days the park is open from 7 a.m to 9 p.m. Are you confused yet? During the summer the park is only open to elementary age kids on Wednesday from 7 a.m to 12 p.m, and during the school year it is open to elementary kids only on Fridays from 1:30- 3:30 p.m. Do not try to go when you are not allowed, you will get busted. Guthrie has lifted its restrictions on bikes, there used to be bike nights, but now it is apparently open with no restrictions. This park has lights and water and is located on 2415 E Bengal Blvd. (7600 S).

Sandy Skatepark

by Colin Howells

One of the biggest skateparks in Utah, Sandy is known to be one of the best parks. The park has something for everyone with flow bowls, pyramids, hips, rollers, manual pads, ledges and rails. All of the rails and ledges are really small making them good for beginners and learning tricks. The transition sections are really fun and have a good flow, there is nothing over 5 ft though and keeping your speed up can be tricky. If you hit this park in the morning when school is in it can be a lot of fun, it does get super packed though, and with the park allowing bikers it can be really hard to get a line in. The park is definitely designed well for bikers and they make their presence known. Sandy does hold strong as many skateboarders favorite park and always has a ton of sick riders there. This park has lights water and restrooms. It is located on 10100 S 700 E. It is only about 3-4 minutes from I-15.

South Jordon A.K.A. SOJO

by Colin Howells

Yeah SOJO! This park is so much fun. With Grindlines rad bowl design you can ride this thing for days. This is one of the most fun bowls in the valley. It’s got so much flow, pool coping huge walls, oververt and of course smooth transitions. The bowl is worth the trip alone and you could have fun just skating that all day, but the street section is just as rad. Everything in it is a blast. A five stair set with a perfect handrail, manual pads to drops, a steep banked hip, euro gap with a ledge to the side, a long down rail, and a block section that is so fun for combos, manuals and grind tricks. There are always groups of super talented skateboarders here and they are usually really nice. The park does have lights and it does not allow bikers. They do have water and restrooms but you have to skate to them about 100 yards away. This is just an all around well designed park and one of my favorites. You will not be disappointed here. Location 10866 S Redwood Rd.

Riverton

by Colin Howells

Riverton’s park is one of the oldest parks in the valley, but despite its outdated design it’s still really fun. The best part of this park is the tranny sections. There are 2 medium bowl sections that are really fun. One is shaped like an 8 and the other is just an oval with a roll in to a deeper section. There is also a spine halfpipe section that is way fun to hit back and forth. The street obstacles are all a little out of the norm but that is what makes them fun. With several pyramids, ledges, banks, hubbas and rails there is good stuff to hit all over. They have a really fun pyramid with a ledge for manuals and grinds that goes out to a drop, good stuff. It’s got some gnarly kinked hubbas if you are feeling kinky, oh and if you step to the gap to rail on the kinked handrail, good luck. There are no lights at this park but it is strictly skateboarders only. They do have water and restrooms. Located at 12600 S 1600 W.

Draper Skatepark

by Colin Howells

East Draper- This is a great park for all skill level riders. It has super small quarterpipes that are good for learning on as well as a bigger bowl section with a wide spine in the middle. There is also a really fun fly box next to the spine and a really good hip to launch out of if you can muster the speed. For the street portions there is a perfect nine stair, ledges bordering the whole park, a big 3 block with a rail, down rails and a pyramid ledge. The coping on these ledges are often times really sticky so bring some wax. The coping on the transition is a super small round bar that is sunk in a little too deep making it pretty insignificant, and in some spots there is no coping at all. Overall this park is pretty fun and if you get bored there are about five parks within ten minutes of it. They do not have lights and do allow bikers. Restrooms and water. Located at 13423 South 300 East.

Herriman

by Colin Howells

If you don’t mind driving way out to the boondocks of the SLC valley, this park is super fun and well worth the drive. Relatively new, Herriman park was built by CA skateparks and designed by Wally Hollyday. It spans approximately 16,000 square ft. and has it all. For starters it has a huge clover bowl for the rippers and a small, super flowy, bowl that spits you out over a roller into a banked bowl area. This section is a ton of fun with a curb on top of the bank for stall tricks. They have a good pyramid as well as a quarterpipe fly box next to it. This is followed by a euro gap to manual pad that drops you off about 3 ½ ft. The street section has long stair sets, a tall 7 or 8 stair with handrail and hubba ledges, then a variety of manual pads, curved grind ledges and steep little quarterpipes. There are some really creative obstacles at this park that sets it apart from a lot of the same old stuff at most parks. This is definitely a favorite of mine when it is not crowded, so I like to hit it in the mornings before school gets out. They do allow bikes and often times it gets overwhelmed with them, it seems to be the biker’s favorite park next to Sandy. Despite all of this, I give it two thumbs up! Way to go CA skateparks. Bathrooms and water available. No Lights. Located at 13400 S 5900 W in Herriman.

Greenwood Skatepark/ American Fork

by Colin Howells

If you think your good at skateboarding, just head on down to American Fork and see how you do with the locals down there. If you hold your own you might have something going for you. It might be that all these kids just have raw talent, or it might have something to do with them having one of the sickest parks in Utah in their backyard. If you are not on you’re A-game here you will probably get wrecked. Everything there is pretty much man sized, not really a park for beginners. If you are feeling some rails, they have the best double rail line with two good sized rails right in a row. The second rail is down a stair set with a nice hubba ledge on the side. The park also has launches, pyramid hips, manual pads and probably the most unique obstacle there, a super steep bank wall with different sizes to choose from. For street skating you just can’t beat a park like this. The park does provide for the bowl riders though, and in a big way. This Clover shaped bowl is made for the big dogs, lose your speed on this one and have fun getting out. Greenwood skatepark is the shizzlebamwootasty, best in Utah Valley hands down. Bathrooms and water are available. Bikers not allowed and no lights yet. Located at 250 E 500 S in American Fork exit #276 off I-15.

Orem Skatepark

by Colin Howells

The Orem park is really big and spread out which is nice, but the design is not very good. The concrete is not very smooth and there are some very questionable features (a triple kinked circle bar about an inch and a half off the ground). Nonetheless every time I have been to this park I have fun. There are quite a few fun lines to be had here if you just get creative. My favorite feature here is the long pyramid with a manual/grind ledge on top of it, good for stalls and revert grinds. They have a good flat bar, which is a rarity and a couple manual pads. There is also a set with a decent rail, an odd shaped bowl that’s pretty fun and a spine pyramid section that is fun to hit back and forth doing transfers. The best part about this park is that it is really easy to get to. You can spot it while driving on I-15 through Orem. It is located at 1200 W 400 N, just take the Orem Center Street Exit, get on 1200 W going North for about a quarter mile. This park does not have lights, they do have restrooms and water.

Layton City

by Colin Howells

Layton is sick! This is one of my favorite parks to go ride big transition. There is pretty much no street to hit except a flat down rail, a manual and a pyramid with a few ledges. Site Design is to thank for this park and with 16,646 sq. ft. there is plenty of room to cruise here. My favorite section is the big open ended bowl area with a pyramid, a euro gap and a huge roller into the next bowl section. This next bowl section offers big tall walls with plenty of room and angles to flow with speed. And last but not least Layton has one of the gnarliest clover bowls I have ever seen. Ummm… Its big! It is also made very well so it is very possible to keep your speed up if you can hang. I have fun in it, but I know it’s really good when I see all of the super good bowl riders from Salt Lake City up there every time I make the drive. Layton is super rad and is definitely worth the drive for me, and with lights on until eleven you can even get a late start. Park is located at 650 N 2100 W, just take Hill Air force Base South gate exit from I-15 Head West. Park does not have restrooms unless softball games are going on but does have water.

Clearfield

by Colin Howells

This is a really fun park and really easy to get to. Its located just off I-15 Clearfield exit at 934 South and 1000 East. The main attraction here is the mid sized bowl. It is super fun with many different size walls and tons of different angles to hit. It has a fun hip on one wall that you can launch out of or just ride over the top, there is also a super gnarly grind extension that if you step to you probably get boards for free. You can ride this bowl all day and not do the same line. There is also a big clover style bowl, pretty smooth and fun..and big…maybe too big? With some fun street obstacles this park can be rated a good all around park. They have a really fun launch to flat next to the bowls, a good flat bar, a block manny/grind section and a curved grind ledge. If you hit up the Layton park this one is worth a stop too. No Lights, water or bathrooms also no bikes, at least I have never spotted one there.

OGDEN (O-Town)

by Colin Howells

The first time I skated this park was for a contest in the middle of the hottest day of the entire summer. I had a sick run set up, but after waiting through the groms and younger divisions I had no energy left to skate and pretty much did not try. Never the less I had a lot of fun here, the kids are all super cool and laid back up in the O-town, oh and really good at skating. The park is pretty old school, but still has plenty of fun lines. It has a fun mini ramp section with a spine and a hip launch, a long down bar, some grind ledges and a big bank volcano thingy. The cool thing about this park is the city pool is right next to it so you can hit it up when your done shredding, or head up ogden canyon and go swimming in the lakes and rivers. To get to the park take I-15 exit at 12th Street in Ogden (Exit 347). Head East into town (about 3 miles). Right on Washington Blvd. Left on Park Blvd ( right under the big "Ogden" sign that spans the street.) Continue along the river. Left on Gramercy Ave. across the little bridge and left into the park. This park does not have lights and does not allow bikes.

Park City

by Colin Howells

I ride Park City, just as fun as going snowboarding up there, this skate park is huge and has everything and anything you could want to skate. The park is approximately 20,000 sq. ft. There is a huge bowl section with various heights, a tranny/street section with pyramids, banks, rails, ledges and mini quarters, and a newly added street section with stairs, ledges rails, gaps and more. This is one of the best parks in Utah hands down. There could be a ton of kids there and you still have room to skate. They do not allow bikes ever and the cops roll by to make sure they are not riding about every hour. Great park to go to in the summer and escape the heat, its always about ten degrees cooler up there and you can always find something fun to do when your done skating. They do not have lights, and a guy comes and locks the park up when it gets dark. In the Summer they also have skate camp that doesn’t get over till about ten thirty so don’t try to go early because the city runs the program and will not allow you to shred with the little grommits. The park is located on Sullivan Road right in the middle of town, really easy to find. Park has good restrooms and water. Don’t miss this park it is well worth it.

Oakley

by Colin Howells

Oakley is in the middle of nowhere, but it is very worthy. To give you an idea of the area, they used to have a no horses allowed sign right at the entrance. I believe the sign has been taken down, but the country living has yet to falter. Oakley is one of the most fun parks to cruise transitions in Utah. Keeping your speed up through the big corners is no problem. They have a few different size walls, and one wall has a sweet hip seat bulging out. The best feature here is probably the huge whale hump that you can roll over, this thing gives you ample speed for anywhere in the bowl. The park also has some alright street obstacles. There is a down rail, a few ledges, hips, banks and manual pads. They also built a super gnarly down rail with a lipped up dismount at the end, you don’t see this type of rail too often and probably for a reason, but if you can step to it, its sick! This park does not have lights, restrooms or water. I’m not sure if bikes are allowed, I have never seen any there, but definitely don’t bring your horse. It is located on the main road in Oakley, it’s a really small town so not too hard to find.

Heber

by Colin Howells

One of the newest parks to hit Utah is the Heber city skate park. This park is huge (20,000 sq. ft.). They have a huge clover bowl, a peanut shaped pool with pool coping. This is the real deal, the transitions are super steep just like a real pool. The midsized bowl is so much fun, one of the best bowls to keep your speed constant while hitting coping. It has four open bowl sections with a roller in the middle. There is plenty of street here as well including several down rails, and hubba ledges, banks, hips, stair sets, a euro gap, mannuals, and launches. They do have a mixed street/ transition section that is super fun. It has a good spine, vert wall, over vert wall and more. All of this pours out into the street section. Heber is a super fun park and well worth the drive. It is also usually a little bit cooler up there in the mountains which makes skating during the day bearable. To get to the park just take the main street all the way into town, then turn west on 100 south and drive on that until you reach the park which is on the left hand side of the road. The address is 800 W 100 S. This park has lights, restrooms and water. They do allow bikes but only two days a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. There has been all sorts of drama here for rules not being followed like the park closing and the lights not being turned on. When will these cities learn to just build it and let it be, why do they have to control when, what and how we do it. A couple kids bike on skate day and a few more skate on bike day and now no one can use the park. Yeah, really good tactic. Good job Heber City Council, you have accomplished nothing but angering citizens.

St. George

by Colin Howells

A bit of a different breed down south. Must be that super dry heat. Nonetheless they produce some amazing skateboarders down there. And they all skate in one place, the St. George skate park. This place gets super crowded, and they do allow bikes, so its better to hit it up in the mornings or when school is in. The design is pretty good and it is fairly big. They have a mini bowl that has a spine which goes into a bigger bowl section. A good street course with flat down bars, little hubbas, a big pyramid section with quarter pipes and a bank with a ledge on top. The surface of the park is really slick, but it is not too hard to manage once you get used to it. There is a water fountain and bathroom there, for some reason they don’t have lights though, which doesn’t make any sense, seeing how many one hundred plus degree days they have. Anyways, really fun park, and tons of cool kids. Local rippers Tieson, Pablo, and James Atkin are always kicking it. To get there just take the bluff exit. You can see it from I-15 so it is not hard to find. Its right next to Fiesta Fun.
