COVID Information

  1. The Recreation Center, Miller Activity Complex and the Millhouse at Philip S. Miller Park are closed. Most programming including Adventure Club preschool, athletics, aquatics, adaptive recreation, arts and enrichment, birthday parties, field rentals, fitness and wellness classes and SilverSneakers classes are canceled. Town’s parks, open spaces and trails remain open.  

    The Town of Castle Rock has received approval from the Tri-County Health Department to operate our licensed day camps.  CSU RAM Camp, Rock Rec Camp and Adventure Club camps are open and enrollment is happening now!  Camps begin May 26th.  Click here for information on the camps and to register.

    The new public health order that took effect April 27 means that Town courts (basketball, pickleball and tennis) are also now open, along with the Town’s skate park. While enjoying these amenities, members of the community must practice social distancing – including ensuring masking, distancing of at least 6 feet, and gatherings of no more than 10 people at a time. The intent remains to limit interactions to only those within your own household. Good hygiene – like not touching your face, and washing your hands well, and often – also remains important.

    Playgrounds – including the FitGround at PSM Park – as well as park pavilions, picnic areas, group gathering areas and fields for organized team practices remain closed under the current order, which is presently set to remain in effect through May 26.
