8490 E Crescent Pkwy # 370, Greenwood Village, CO (Off of DTC Blvd.)
Conditions - The conditions are pretty good here, however, along the little stream that runs through, the spot has made some of the surrounding surfaces wet and grimy. Otherwise, the place is great. It has a somewhat new look to it and everything is solid. Plus there is a huge fountain next to the spot to sit down and eat or maybe even cool off with.
Security - I have not seen any security guards whatsoever when I have gone because the only place you could get into any trouble at all is if you are directly outside the front doors of the office buildings or at the Morton's Steak House nearby. Other than that, there is no security at all.
Obstacles - The obstacles here are great. The most obvious being the concrete blocks to leap from, which are great for testing your jumping ability, or maybe a few cat leaps too (if you are small enough not to hit the water). Then there are the unique red walls surrounding the place that are at an 86 degree angle or so, complete with rails at the tops of them which are great for a pop vault to underbar combo (loads of fun) or other unique kinds of wall runs. Besides that, there are walls that you can climb, many walls that you can vault above the bridge near the parking lot, and walls to drop off of onto grass.
Features: Huge concrete blocks for jumps, a variety of unique walls, and tons of rail fun.
Lacks: Not much, if anything.
Overall - This whole area is great for practicing everything in the book, advanced or beginner level. Plus the place is huge so there is not one specific spot that is better than others, it's all equally rounded. Also you can test out your climbing abilities with some of the walls, which is tons of fun, but a little dangerous. Other than that, the whole area is relatively new so everything looks nice and is well kept. In this area, take time to explore everywhere because there are lots of things to do. And if you feel like walking down the path a little, there are more hot spots along the way.
