This place is running great, for the most part. It's been in rough shape for years, but some people are taking care of it now. All the jump lines... view

Not worth checking out. A few tents on and under features that probably aren't rideable anyway. Bummer. view

The northern half of Colonnade is rideable but the southern portion is returning to its place as being a homeless encampment even after the city... view

I visited on opening day, all those years ago, so I have a fair recollection of what this park once was. I also visited a year ago and encountered... view

       PLEASE, do not waste your time ... rode all over the place looking for 1 good line, didn't find it. There's a homeless man sleeping on Nick's Kicks while his "stockpile" is sitting on AWOL. There's a healthy pile of human feces on the pump track along with the bedsheets used to clean up. There a pack of drug dealers at the bottom of Limestone Loop. Where water actually made it to the ground after this 20" of rain the moon dust has turned into a slimy conconction of mud, water, discarded Cheetos bags, pieces of old mattresses, and Olde English tall boys. I'm extremely sad to see the hundreds of volunteer hours put into this very impressive skills area go completely to waste. Overgrown flora on the top and busted features all over. The graffiti in the bowls is actually kind of nice, gives a cool feeling on approach, however I was unable to ride it due to the scattered busted milk crates and homeless gold mines all over. On a positive note the off leash dog park was full of happy puppys and smiling latte drinking yuppies the entire time we were there!

       Went to see it for the first time today. It is sad to see such an epic place fall in to disrepair. There were at least two homeless people who had well established camps under the structures and they did not look friendly.
