Fort Morgan Skatepark Overview
This Evergreen Skatepark provides a unique skate experience for anyone who gets to spend some time exploring the different bowls, mounds, rollers, banks, and corners of the Fort Morgan Skatepark.
The entrance to the park does directly into one long pump track that contains a few street elements. You can hit one or several of these street elements or use the pump track to get some speed before entering the flow park.
Along the pump track, you will find a long flat rail, a manual pad, and last, an additional shorter flat rail. These three obstacles are nice and spread out so that a skater could throw together three different tricks using all three of the elements before dropping down into the large bowl or continuing on to the flow park.
Hit a quick 50-50 grind on the first rail, pop shove it out, and ollie onto the manual pad riding your back wheels until the end. Pop off the manual pad and pump a few times before setting your feet for a front-side board slide on the perfect little low-sitting flat rail.
If you can throw together three different tricks through the street plaza before flowing down into the large bowl, you may have unlocked pro-skater status. Ok, not really. But, the layout of the park creates some potential for throwing together some sick runs.
Once you are in the flow park, you will first see a large bowl with two banks in the depths of the bowls. Hang in the bowl for a while, shredding the walls and grinding the coping, then hop out to find an almost endless series of mounds and banks.
The flow park portion of the Fort Morgan Skatepark has a design that resembles a contour map that you would use on a hiking trip. With all the different peaks and valleys you can maintain momentum and eventually end up in an elliptical-shaped 300-degree bowl.
This egg-shaped bowl is one of the main attractions of the park as it sits a bit lower from the rest of the park. Because of this you can get some incredible speed before you enter the bowl.
The Fort Morgan Skatepark is open from sunrise to sunset to skaters of all ages and skill levels.
