The elusive side yard bowl started taking shape in early 2013. Pro skateboarder Chet Childress was staying at the house and started gathering material for fill behind the concrete. Soon local skatepark builders started getting involved and final dimensions were made. Then it was time to talk to the city... Arvada has an ordinance about corner lots having no high structures for the first 30 feet, so when applying for a permit the bowl dimensions had to be compromised. This is why the south pocket is so much lower than the rest.

This bowl is a great place to start your Colorado skate adventure with it being a small and easy to roll around in.

The bowl was done in 2 pours, mostly handled by a crew of Team Pain skatepark builders and the Arvada Army, who combined to build a lot of local spots back in the day. The transitions are friendly, but lack of flat bottom is not. The coping is either pool block, or brick for an authentic grinding surface.

The position of the bowl on a property next to a well-used street and sidewalk ends up raising many eyebrows from passers-by. Itís a great chance for folks to get a glimpse into backyard skateboarding and its characters.

Countless skateboarders from professionals to little kids starting out, have enjoyed this masterpiece in their own unique way.
