Some of the Town’s most beautiful and prominent features are its open spaces, parks and trails. Take a hike with the kids, enjoy the great outdoors or sneak a peak at local wildlife. The Town truly has something for everyone. Most residents agree, Castle Rock has some of the most gorgeous open space and trails in all of Colorado. Download a map, and get out there and explore. The Town boasts more than 50 developed parks and is always looking for ways to increase amenities for the public.

Each year, residents enjoy family-friendly events, concerts, festivals, fundraisers, races and environmental education and cultural programs throughout Castle Rock's parks. 2018 will be an exciting year for festivities with the Town's reimagined Festival Park and the 300-acre Philip S. Miller regional park.

Neighborhood Park Planning

Future park planning includes the addition of new community and neighborhood parks to maintain current levels of service. As the Town of Castle Rock continues to grow, so will the need for additional neighborhood parks. For additional information, please visit the project updates page.


As additional parks, trails and recreation equipment are added to serve the growing community, the Parks and Recreation Department will implement the use of Cartegraph in early 2017. Cartegraph is an operations management system technology, allowing for better management of assets and servicing needs. The new software will result in improved organization and strategy in tracking assets, including trees, park benches, fitness equipment and trail surfaces, amongst hundreds of thousands of other items. Cartegraph also allows for better preventative maintenance on resources such as baseball fields and tennis courts. The software will assist staff in tracking assets and ultimately developing servicing schedules, which will hopefully allow for increased preventative maintenance and decreased reactive maintenance.

Tree City USA

Castle Rock has been recognized as a Tree City USA community since 1986. To qualify as a Tree City USA community, the Town must meet four standards established by the Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters. These standards were established to ensure that every qualifying community would have a viable tree management plan and program.

They include:
1. Maintaining a tree board or department;
2. Having a community tree care ordinance;
3. Spending at least $2 per capital on urban forestry; and 
4. Celebrating Arbor Day.

Bicycle Friendly Community

The League of American Bicyclists has designated Castle Rock as a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly CommunitySM, recognizing the Town’s commitment to improving conditions for bicycling through investment in bicycling promotion, education programs, infrastructure and pro-bicycling policies.
