Howard Heuston Skatepark Overview
When it comes to the community of Boulder and its surrounding communities, you can tell that they take the art and sport of skateboarding seriously. There are a number of skateparks located throughout the city of Boulder and the towns that surround it.
This little park is a nice spot for skaters in the Glenwood Grove-North Iris neighborhood to keep honed in on their bowl and flow park skating skills before heading out to the larger parks in the area.
When you first enter the skatepark there are two half-moon bowls on the left and right edges of the park and a central open bowl. The center open bowl section contains a number of banks and a volcano at one end that separates it from one of the large half-moon bowls.
This half-moon bowl with a volcano at its entrance contains over 270 degrees of coping and some ultra-smooth concrete. Spend some time swirling around this open bowl before popping out and riding the rollers that lead to the other half-moon open bowl at the other end of the park.
The main downside to the Howard Heuston Skatepark is that there is not one single street element. This can leave some skaters wanting more and looking for any nearby flower planters, benches, stair sets, or anything that is skateable for a street-style skateboarder.
Surrounding the Howard Heuston Skatepark is a much larger park with a dog park area, basketball courts, a playground, and plenty of wide open space for people to enjoy a picnic or a few games of basketball.
The Howard Heuston Skatepark is open 7 days a week from 5 am to 9 pm as weather permits in the lovely city of Boulder, Colorado.
