The Butte skatepark is probably less than 6,000 feet, but has two great bowls, and an interesting flow area, with some street features as well. Another Dreamland gem. The flow area is perfect for beginners of all ages, nice mellow banks
and hips.

The kidney bowl is probably around 8 foot deep, and has a fairly tight
shallow end. Some will be attracted to this bowl, because of it's size
and shape, and the fact that it has pool coping.
Others might be attracted to the "L" shaped bowl, which also has pool
coping, plus it has a huge bank wall for that extra speedy feeling. It
also features a love seat. But the feature that you don't find too
often is the nearly 12 foot deepend. The "L" shaped bowl seemed almost
intuitive to skate. The faster I went, the more fun I had. Each wall
sends you to the next and so on.

Beautiful bowls! This place is rad! Free, no pads, the
only downfall is the poor excuse for a street course.

I'd give the tranny rating a straight 5 star if there wasn't water seeping into the 1 bowl and coping being beaten out in the other bowl. I was drooling for the loveseat by the water was too much to bail out, with the possibility of it filling right back up on us. The waterfall in the skateable bowl was also less then desirable. It was really flat and hard tranny merged into the transitions along side of it.

The street course didn't see much attention except from some scooter kids. it looks like it had some fun obstacles.

Sick bowls, some unique street and flow sections. Personally I found them to close together as well as very slick. But overall a fun park and worth checking out. Plus Butte is a fun town to street and sick hill bombs.
