NileGuide Expert Says:
When your kids are pulling ollies and kick-flip 180's at the newly-installed skateboard park, you too can escape gravity. Scott Carpenter would have been proud.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Scott Carpenter park is right on the RTD bus route and right on the Boulder Creek Path, making it easily accessible via bus or bike.
- Named after a local astronaut, this park is a favorite for locals, and especially for kids. A rocket shaped jungle gym attracts hordes of young enthusiasts honing early climbing skills for later pursuits on the Flatirons. An large outdoor pool draws crowds from late May until late August. Skateboarders come for the 10-foot half pipe and the assortment of odd shaped mini ramps. During the winter the park becomes a sledding paradise.
