Castle Rock opens up phase one of new park
The Town of Castle Rock is proud to announce the opening of a new neighborhood park. Cobblestone Ranch Park, located at 8571 Castle Oaks Drive was officially opened on June 29 with a carnival-themed festival that included aerial performers, stilt walkers, snow cones, games, live music and a 5K run.
The 12-acre park is the first phase of a $5.6 million project. The new features include picnic areas, a large playground for different age levels, a pump track for biking, a half-court for basketball, six pickleball courts, green open space, sidewalks, a plumbed, all-season restroom and off-street parking. The long-term goal is to make Cobblestone Ranch Park a “regional destination,” much like Philip S. Miller Park. The final phase of the park is projected to be 168 acres.
“We’re really grateful for residents’ involvement in planning this new park,” said Councilmember Laura Cavey. “Their input helped create some exciting amenities for the entire northeast area of Castle Rock,” she added. “Plus, the combination of natural resources, park development and trail connections will make Cobblestone Ranch Park a draw for the entire community.” To view the plans for the next phase, visit crgov.com/cobblestoneranchpark.
