Party in the Park
With so much rain and fabulous weather this summer, thousands of Castle Pines neighbors got to enjoy tossing their picnic blankets onto gorgeous green lawns as they enjoyed a little music and some good company at the parks in Castle Pines for the summer concert series.
The first summer concert to kick off was at Coyote Ridge Park Saturday July 22. What started off as a hot night in the 90s quickly cooled thanks to some cloud cover. The big finale that drew more than 3,200 people from Castle Pines was the summer season ender at Elk Ridge Park on August 12, Party in the Park.
Party in the Park did not disappoint. There was food, drinks, vendors, music a kid’s zone and an awesome fireworks display and laser show.
The Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce and the City of Castle Pines worked together to make sure friends and neighbors could gather and enjoy what our wonderful summer nights have to offer.
This year, the City of Castle Pines even had a few young students as ambassadors walk around and get other young people to share their input on what amenities they want to be offered at Coyote Ridge Park and future Soaring Hawk Park.
Mayor Tracy Engerman said, “We hear a lot from parents about what they want in our parks and throughout the city, but we want the kids to have a voice too, and we want them to enjoy our parks and have a say in what they offer.”
