Under the current State guidelines, the Recreation Center will be open June 1. New safety precautions will be in place, and users will be required to reserve time slots online. More information is coming soon. The Miller Activity Complex is currently being used exclusively for Summer Camp programming and is not open to the general public. The Millhouse at Philip S. Miller Park remains closed. The Town’s parks, open spaces and trails are open and the Challenge Hill is open for one-way use.
The Town received approval from the Tri-County Health Department to operate licensed day camps. CSU RAM Camp, Rock Rec Camp and Adventure Club camps are open and registration is currently available. Half-Day camps are tentatively scheduled to open June 1. More information available at CRgov.com/Camps.
The Town’s athletic courts (basketball, pickleball and tennis) are also now open, along with the skate park. However, ball fields are closed and team sports are not permitted under the state order. Non-fenced fields are open for individuals or members of the same household. Please remember to practice social distancing, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet and do not gather in groups of more than 10 people. Additionally, local health officials recommend wearing a face covering while in public. 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.
Youth athletic programs are tentatively scheduled to start June 8, but are awaiting confirmation from the State of Colorado.
All special events have been cancelled for June. More information on the summer events schedule is coming soon.
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 at this time.
Philip S. Miller Park features the 200-step Challenge Hill. On average, more than 30,000 fitness and trail enthusiasts alike flock to the timber steps that rise 178 feet in elevation every month. The Millhouse and Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park are the perfect backdrop for celebrating life's moments and hosting corporate retreats.
The park also features Castle Rock Zip Line Tours as part of a public-private partnership. Residents and tourists alike enjoy 10 zip lines, the Epic Sky Trek and the Epic Adventure Tower. Standing 70-feet tall, the tower allows users to scale a 40-foot climbing wall, zip and jump from a 40-foot platform or choose to free fall from a 70-foot platform, while protected by state-of-the-art auto belay devices. The Epic Sky Trek, an aerial trekking course with three levels, features over 110 challenging obstacle elements. 2017 saw 25,000 thrill-seeking visitors, and more than 500 residents and local businesses hosted team-building activities.
The wait is over - the re-imagined Festival Park in the heart of downtown Castle Rock is now open! This central gathering place has been transformed into a vibrant urban park and will host the community's most treasured events.
The Parks and Recreation Department is a proud member of the Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority. This partnership is working to bring programmed and self-directed recreational opportunities to the Rueter-Hess Reservoir.
