While there are no designated off-leash dog parks/areas in Castle Pines North, there are many located very close. And, most CPN residents don’t even know about the newest one!
Glendale Farms Open Space, a Douglas County Park, located at the Surry Ridge exit off I-25 (exit 190) contains a new off-leash dog park. “So far it’s been a well-kept secret,” says Bobby Cosgrove, a 7th grader at Rocky Heights Middle School and resident of CPN’s KnightsBridge neighborhood.
“Even when you get to the parking lot, you have to really look to find the actual park. The park is to your right as you enter the open space. It is fenced and it offers about five acres of dog-playing space,” Bobby explains.
