Paradise Valley Skatepark Overview
Paradise Valley Skatepark is the OG skatepark in Phoenix, Arizona. Built in 2001, during a time when skateparks were rare the park is now over two decades. At 26,000 square feet, it’s still one of the largest skateparks in Phoenix.
Designed by SITE Design Group, the skatepark was created to cater to both street and transition skating. The park includes a deep kidney bowl, an elongated bowl that’s kinked into a kind of snake run, and a smaller square bowl that forms a spine off the back of the kinked bowl.
The rest of the park is taken up by a sprawling flow bowl and street plaza area that’s hemmed in with a wide range of hips and small transitions. Street features are scattered around the edges of this plaza and include rails, stairs, fun boxes and ledges.
