Hey there I'm just gonna give u a little update on the Skate Park in Great Falls, MT. Its been a few years since its been opened so its Probably time to update the information a little. Well first of all the park does have lights now.. Well it always had lights but they never turned them on till graffiti became an issue, haha. Huge park, Simply Amazing. Your skill level will never be an issue to what u can do at this park, there is something for everyone. The park is really fun still after years of riding it. its funny because at times u see the mini section just getting all the use. There is always room in the park, if one feature or bowl is crowded there is plenty of skatepark being untouched that u ride. Fun for everyone. occasionally a pro demo will come through town and skate it from time to time. Everyone is welcome, and outsiders will not feel weird or out of place/ kicked out. The lights are...okay. there's about 7 or so lights around the skatepark i want to say but there's a lot of concrete to light.. it does an okay job of it... they keep it just lit enough so you can ride it at night, but does leave some shadows in places, which make it hard to be smooth. the lights try and test to see how good your night eyes are... best to ride it with a full moon.. easier to see. Just a Little update on the rules now.. they do enforce helmets from time to time. usually no problem but bring one just in case the officers of law come.. that's about it.. its a great park feel free to come visit!

...on your web site you asked for more information about the Great Falls, Montana Skate Park. Well for starters it is 27,000 sq feet. Not to bad for a state that has more deer then people. The park opened a week ago, and is getting a fair amount of use. Nothing compared to what it will receive once word gets out. This park is big. The park sports three bowls both vertical and over vertical. The park is packed with dips, curves, spines, fun boxes, rails, curbs, gaps, and over a 100 transitions. The park can accommodate every skill level from beginner to extreme pro in the the bowls and full pipe. The City is charging no admission and the Grindline designed park open just last weekend. This is definitely in the top 20 parks nation wide, if not the top 10. All our park needs is promotion, contests, and maybe sponsership. I know that it seems big, especially for a small town park, but already on weekends it gets a lot of visitors. I would love to see it expand even larger in the future. All we need to do is show how much use it will get.

This was a very fun park, it deserves some pictures. I am looking forward to riding it again on the way to Hailey. Only a couple things to add to the current description. The fullpipe is only 6'' long at most It doesn't look like it was made to be ridden, it's more of a pedestrian bridge. And the old fashioned reservoir is a cool addition.
