Picture Rocks Skatepark

Picture Rocks skatepark is in the middle of a desert. Normally, this statement is more of an expression than truth. In fact, it could be said that every park in Arizona is in the desert. But the Picture Rocks skatepark literally is in the middle of a desert. Because of this fact, a trip to Picture Rocks is about as scenic as it gets. The directions from the south actually take you through the Saguaro National Park, so get your camera, canteen, and sunscreen ready for a day in the desert.
Picture Rocks skatepark consists of a skate path that leads to an open flow area. It can't be called a flow bowl, because the area isn't completely enclosed. Unfortunately, this decision to leave the sides open adds to the dirt and pebble factor. This coupled with bike traffic on and off the concrete, can create a flat spot situation for your wheels if you're not careful. In all the park's finish is excellent, smooth, and fast. If you are in the area, you are stoked. Go get some.
Check the link below before you go. The park has set times for both skateboards and bmx. Check the link below to view the current park schedule.
Picture Rocks skate park gets a solid rating of 7.5 out of 10.

+ Smooth, fun and fast
- Dirt, sand and rocks everywhere
? Look out for the pump bump between the open flow bowl and skate path. It's beyond steep and will buck you if you're not ready.
