Although you'll rarely find it on any map, this park is referred to by the city as "Velocity Skatepark", but its actual, official name is actually Carr McNatt Park. This skatepark is clearly a bit older than most of the skateparks in the Phoenix Metro area. Either that, or it's aging very quickly (and very badly). Largely a transition-based skatepark bowl complex that averages about 5' tall virtually everywhere, it features lots of round corners, hips, and a long spine that bisects the west end of the bowl. There's also a really hard-to-skate "street area" at the far west end with a few ledges and rails that seem to dead-end into fences, and a dangerous looking, super-steep little pyramid that doesn't really make any sense at all. Bowlriders and mini-ramp champs will find it a little challenging (with cracks, kinks, and uneven coping in a few key spots), but moderately fun, while street kids will want to head straight back to Phoenix to skate one of the many street plazas. Probably not worth a long drive or a road trip, but might be worth a quick stop if you happen to be passing through. -Bud Stratford, Concrete Wave Magazine/Concrete Disciples, April 2017
