It’s no secret that Colorado is brimming with picturesque mountainscapes, friendly neighborhoods, and endless entertainment opportunities. With such wonderful attributes, finding a great place to call home isn’t a difficult task. But even within these lovely communities, there are some places that rise above the rest. Truly encompassing the best of what Colorado has to offer, the city of Castle Pines is among those communities that shine a bit brighter.
Parks and Recreation
Castle Pines boasts some of the most beautiful parks not just in the state of Colorado, but in the country. Coyote Ridge Park and Elk Ridge Park are just two of the charming parks that call Castle Pines home. At Coyote Ridge, you will be greeted by breathtaking views and a pleasant atmosphere. Residents also have access numerous walking trails, a baseball field, picnic pavilions, a playground, and a skate park. Elk Ridge Park is the latest addition to the Castle Pines recreation facilities, and has many of the same features as Coyote Ridge such as walking trails and picnic pavilions. One of Elk Ridge’s unique attributes are fun, educational features that give facts about the history of Colorado. It also has a climbing wall, water fountain for children to play in, and art features.
Castle Pines is also home to one of Colorado’s most prestigious golf courses, The Ridge at Castle Pines North. The Ridge has four sets of tees that measure from 5,000 yards to more than 7,000 yards in length. And it has received both statewide and national recognition in various publications. Adding to the recreational opportunities, one of the largest parks in the Denver Mountain Park System sits just outside the city borders. Daniel’s Park is known for its bison herd, dramatic views of the Rocky Mountains, and historic buildings. Most of the park is a Bison preserve and natural area where visitors can view wildlife in their natural habitat.
Arts & Culture
On top of being a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, Castle Pines is full of opportunities in the arts and those who are captivated by it. CPACF (Castle Pines Art & Cultural Foundation) is a proud supporter if the arts. They host the Missoula Children’s Theater as well as the Missoula Community Theater. And throughout the year they host several events for residents to enjoy. In the Fall, attend Fall in the Foothills, a celebration of the seasons. Here you’ll find food, music, education, and more that will bring residents together and puts a smile on their faces. And in the Spring residents gather for the Summer Solstice Fair.
Life in Castle Pines really offers the best of both worlds. The city of about 10,000 residents lies within the Front Range Urban Corridor and is considered part of the greater Denver metropolitan area. Living here you are only a short distance from all the amenities that Denver has to offer. But far enough away to have a genuine sense of Colorado living at its finest. When you call Castle Pines home, you’re close to some of the best winter ski resorts, hiking and nature trails, hunting, boating, golf, and so much more.
