You will see baseball diamonds and a glimpse of the skate park to your right; turn right onto East River Front Road, and the skatepark (and parking lot) will be immediately to your left.

The Cottonwood Skatepark is a small-sized, free, outdoor, concrete skatepark that features two mini-ramp sized bowls, and a small street section. The first bowl is a slight left-hand "pseudo-kidney" with a squared-off shallow end that's maybe 4' deep, and a big, deep, round deep end that probably approaches 7' or so. The second bowl is a bit of a squared-off clover; the round sections are quite short, probably in the 4' range, while the square deep end is closer to 6'. The "street" area has a bunch of flat banks, hips, and pyramids with a few ledges, hubbas, and rails tossed in. Overall, it skates pretty good, and is worth a quick stop if you're in the Sedona area; there are parks nearby in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Camp Verde, and Sedona, so between those, you have the makings of a fun day trip. -Bud Stratford, Everything Skateboarding/Concrete Disciples





This Wally Holiday return to the art of skatepark design is a good time for all. The left hand kidney is the centerpiece of the park and it is fun as hell. That doesn't mean its perfect though. Not enough vert = difficulty doing airs or handplants. You can also tell that this was ol' Wally's first (or early) attempt at working with metal coping. Its bonksville in places and nonexistent in others. However, it consistently does not stick up on top which = way hard to "lock" into smiths, feebles, 5-O's, etc. The tri-bowl/clover thing is fun, but be prepared to earn your speed lines. The street course has a few good obstacles but there are some "dead ends" and lack of planning (i.e. one push run-up for a handrail) On the plus side, the cement is smooth, its free, and the Verde river right next to the park is a prime AZ swimmin' hole.

This skatepark is ok. It's been around a long time now and its a little dated, but there is a lot of stuff to ride.
