Directions
Whoa boy, this one is way out in the boonies! Take US 93 north or south to AZ 97 east. Drive 10.9 miles until AZ 97 "tees" at AZ 96. Turn left (northbound) and drive 4.3 miles into town, to Lindahl Rd. Turn right onto Lindahl, and drive .7 mile to Palo Verde Rd; it will be on the left. Turn left, drive a few hundred feet, and the skatepark is almost immediately on the right, next to the library and the town offices.

  Bagdad is a small mining town approximately halfway between Kingman and Wickenburg, about fifteen minutes east of US 93. You'd be surprised to find that there's a skatepark there at all; I sure was. It's a tiny little skatepark, maybe 1500 square feet, all concrete, with a super tight, 4' high, boob-shaped half-bowl to one side, and a 5' tall, medium-sized quarterpipe at the other end. In between, there's a short pyramid, a pair of "nipple" shaped obstacles (I swear to God, I'm not making this up; GoogleMap it if you don't believe me!), a bench, and a curb-height box/manual pad. It's not much to skate, but considering that Bagdad has zilch in the way of real street skating, and the closest town is at least 45 minutes away, these kids are probably pretty happy to have anything at all. If you do happen to swing by, make a point of stopping at The Diner On Main (on the corner of Main and Lindahl), a legit '50s-era diner that serves some pretty good eats in a retro-cool atmosphere! -Bud Stratford, Everything Skateboarding/Concrete Disciples, February 4th, 2018
