Located at the corners of Durango and Spring mountain at the Desert Breeze park, the new Las Vegas skatepark leaves the veteran skater asking: "what were they thinking?"

The first thing you see when you approach the park from the main parking lot is the "A" bowl. I call it this because from the air it must look like an upper case "A", like on the anarchy symbol. Oddly enough this bowl has a combination of too much flat and not enough. The extensions off the main bowl are about 4 feet deep and they taper to 6 in the main section with no flat bottom. The main bowl is too wide and open to maintain speed without pushing and the transitions are such that putting together a good line is very hard.

The next item would be a snake run: 3 feet deep and way too tight - maybe 8 feet lip to lip, sharp corners, and extensions. In short It Don't Flow

The crowning achievement is what would be a great bowl were it not for the 6 foot nipple that sits where the flat bottom should be. Basically this is a giant bunt cake pan!

The designer of this park made the city sign a release when they changed his designs so that he would not be held responsible for what they ended up with. (That should tell you something important)

On the Thrasher skatepark chart this puppy is a 2 out of 10. It beats losing money at the casino, but proceed with caution. Those stains on the concrete are not spilt sodas, they are blood. This baby has sent a few to the hospital.

There is some fun to be had here. It's not the greatest thing and was kind of worn out years ago, but its still a go for a little fun Sombrero bowl is a trip!

this is an awful park. too tight and rough for anything. maybe the scooter kids can do something with it, but it seems even too tight for bikes.

that ridiculous sombrero bowl at the end of the snake run is useless and most of the concrete in general is in desperate need of smoothing.

just a bad, bad skatepark. and it's a shame- that part of town could really use a good skatepark...
