There are many great fields and parks in Castle Pines available by reservation for sports practices, parties or gatherings. The Castle Pines North Metropolitan District manages Coyote Ridge, Daniel’s Gate and The Retreat Parks while the City of Castle Pines manages Elk Ridge Park. Here is how to make reservations:
Coyote Ridge, Daniel’s Gate and The Retreat Parks: Soccer fields are available at all three parks and baseball fields are available at Coyote Ridge Park and The Retreat Park. Requests for spring practices will be accepted starting January 30.
Residents pay $25/hour and non-residents pay $35/hour to help defray costs for maintenance of the fields. Castle Pines residents who reside in the district’s service area can reserve the picnic pavilions at Coyote Ridge Park for $25/hour ($50/hour for non-residents). The Retreat Park picnic area is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
