Lake Stevens Skatepark is a 16,000-square-foot outdoor concrete skatepark in Lake Stevens, Washington that first opened in 2017. The park was finally designed and constructed in conjunction with Evergreen Skateparks, the City of Lake Stevens, and park planners working for Snohomish County.
The entire process took almost 10 years, however, many would argue that it was well worth the wait. The result is a wonderfully designed skatepark filled with bowls, mini-ramps, rails, ledges, and stairs all put together in a well-organized and thoughtful arrangement.

Lake Stevens Skatepark Overview
First off, one of the things that bring skaters to the West Stevens Lake Skatepark from all over the surrounding area is the bowls. The bowls are massive, contain multiple depths, and have plenty of variation to allow skaters to get creative in how they flow from one end of the bowl structures to the other.
The main bowl is long and is constructed with four or five different and distinct shapes. The far end is a nice deep pill-shaped bowl that leads into a kind of bowl/snake run that then curves into an elongated rounded rectangle bowl.
The secondary bowl is smaller, however, it can be argued it is more interesting. There are three different depths in this bowl and a portion in one bowl that has an upper wall ride curved lip that almost feels like you are getting inverted.
At the other end of the park, away from the bowls is a two-faced quarterpipe that is opposite a street plaza with almost too many elements to choose from.
Start at the top near the bowls and skate downhill to a series of banks, stairs, rails, ledges, hubbas, and a funbox rail combination before hitting the quarterpipe at the bottom of the hill. To the left of the funbox-rail combination is a bank/wall-ride/gap combination that skaters love skating up, clearing the gap, and then skating back down in the street plaza area.
The skatepark itself contains plenty of picnic tables and seating for family and friends to watch, while the skatepark itself is all part of a much large park facility with plenty of other amenities to keep everyone happy during family day at the park.
The park is open to skateboards, in-line skates, scooters, and BMX bikes between sunrise and sunset 365 days a year and as weather permits. Helmets and full pads are strongly recommended by the City of Lake Stevens.
