Skateboard Park

The Rio Grande Skateboard Park, built in 2001, is the direct result of youth, young adults, parents, and the Parks and Recreation Department working together to satisfy a recreational need.

Since the opening it has become one of the most popular recreational facilities, accommodating upwards of 200 to 300 riders per day. With over 13,000 square feet of skate terrain, skaters will be able to keep busy all day long. The three distinct skate areas from shallow-and-easy to deep-and-difficult make skating possible for the beginner, intermediate, and advanced skater.

Any violation of these rules and regulations is punishable by a fine, expulsion, and/or prosecution/jail time for trespassing on City property pursuant to City of Aspen Municipal Criminal Code 15.04.280.

This facility has been designed for use by skateboarders and in-line skaters. In order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience, please observe the following:
