Visiting Sin City and looking for a place to work on your moves with your skateboard?
Or maybe you live in Las Vegas and don’t have your own personal half pipe in the backyard.
Not to worry fellow skaters, cause there is a live and thriving skateboard community in Vegas.
As a result of this popularity, there are many great skate parks located throughout the city.
Here are several our favorites in the greater Las Vegas area, including Henderson.
Desert Breeze Park Skatepark
Desert Breeze park spans over 240 acres and has more to offer locals than just the skate park.
Though it is worth nothing that this is THE skatepark in Vegas that Tony Hawk visited and tore it up with some locals
This park is awesomely designed, with sections for beginners, and intermediate to advanced riders as well.
Relax on the benches under shaded pavilions when you need a break, get some water at the fountains, or skate into the night thanks to the extensive evening lights.

Anthem Skate Park
Anthem Skate Park is considered as one of the best skate parks that Las Vegas has to offer.
The park has been open since 2003 and offers a huge flow area that has depths ranging from 3 feet to 9 feet.
There is also a great kidney pool that has steep transitions.
Anthem makes for an awesome beginner-to-intermediate park where you could spend all day polishing your skills.
You can even ride out the night thanks to the park’s extensive lights, which only turn on at closing time.
The park requires that a helmet be worn at all times and if you are caught without one you can be ticketed.
