Planning a team practice, family gathering or party during the next few months? There are many great parks in Castle Pines available by reservation. The Castle Pines North Metro District manages Coyote Ridge, Daniel’s Gate, and The Retreat parks, while the City of Castle Pines manages the newest park, Elk Ridge.

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 9. There is no field use fee for teams with members who reside in the City of Castle Pines.
City residents can reserve the picnic pavilions at Coyote Ridge Park for $25 per hour ($50 per hour for non-residents). The Retreat Park picnic area is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
