The Woodland Park Skatepark located at Red Mountain Adventure Park in Woodland, Colorado, is a sprawling 24,000 square feet of skateboarding and BMX heaven. The park is split into two main parts. There is the 8,000 square-foot concrete skatepark and street plaza surrounded by 16,000 square feet of dirt tracks and tabletop BMX jumps.
Both the concrete skatepark and the BMX section of the park were designed and constructed by Spohn Ranch. The planning and designing of the park started as early as 2008 with the park opening to the public in 2011.

Woodland Park Skatepark Overview
The Woodland Park Skatepark has a diamond-shaped layout with a path that cuts directly through the middle. At the base of the diamond, there is one large horseshoe-shaped ramp section. Skaters can drop in from any of the three sides of this horseshoe ramp section and treat it like a mini-ramp.
All of the coping is grindable and the two ends of the horseshoe have roll-ins that lead to other parts of the skatepark. Some skaters love to stick in this area to practice their vert and transition-style skate skills whereas others enjoy the street elements that decorate the remaining areas of the park.
Opposite the horseshoe-ramp section is the entrance to the park. To enter the park, there is an extra-long runway that leads to a solid four-stair that follows the middle path through the park. The stair set has a handrail on either side of the stairs for easy rail access no matter if you are regular or goofy-footed. Outside of the stairs and the rails are two large concrete hubbas with metal coping.
If you take the center path through the middle of the park, you can clear the stairs or grind one of the rails or hubbas, then flow directly into a nice manual pad. Pop an ollie up on the manual pad and hold that nose manual for the entire pad length before popping off and rolling straight into the horseshoe ramp section.
If you enter the park and decide not to take the middle path, you have two other options. You can go right or left and skate the outer perimeter of the park. If you go to the right, you will find some rollers that make a small pump track that leads to a corner ramp and then to a low-sitting flat rail.
If you go to the left, you will have a roll-in followed by a grindable ledge and a pyramid in the corner. From there you will find a two-tiered manual pad ledge combination. All three paths lead to the horseshoe ramp section at the base of the diamond-shaped skatepark.
