Thanks for all your hard work and a fantastic website where us skaters from all schools can go to get worldwide info on skate parks. I would like to help and make a contribution. Attached are photos of the new skate park at Southpark/Fairplay here in Colorado. I am stationed here in Colorado Springs with the US Army and friend told me about this place. I went there this weekend and have the following to report:
The skate park opened on 03 Oct 05 and has a light local crowd of skaters, mostly kids with an attitude that by chance are named Kyle and Kenny... But seriously, the park is small but tight with smooth transitions. Continuity can be found between the combined bowls with one large bowl over-vertical, and a capsule that is just right and comfortable for upside-down rides. The street course is very basic and offers very little for street skaters. Vert and over-vert is where is at, at this small, yet rad skate park.
A good place to stay is the Western Inn (Tel. (719)836-2026, right at Fairplay. There are several restaurants, eating options, and entertainment close to the skate park in this little quaint western town. Breckenridge is only 20 minutes away to the NW on Hwy 9.
