Castle Rock

Welcome to Castle Rock

National Recreation and Park Association Gold Medal Winner.
 
Located just south of Colorado’s capital city, Castle Rock is in an area shielded from the harsh winter storms of the mountains and just outside the reach of the extreme heat of the plains. With just more than 66,000 residents, Castle Rock still values its small-town character with a traditional historic Downtown core and regular community events. Castle Rock’s identity is rich with history that is primarily centered around the large illuminated star that overlooks the city. Click here to learn more about about the Star ⭐
 
Castle Rock provides many home options to choose from, there are 100-plus-year-old homes in the Town’s center to the new construction offered in myriad styles and locations. And all the neighborhoods are just a short distance away from the historic Downtown, where street festivals and unique shops and restaurants are as common as the welcoming smiles from neighbors.

Local Lifestyle

In 2022, MoneyGeek named Castle Rock the safest small city in Colorado. Crime statistics were analyzed and the cost of those crimes were quantified to identify the safest small cities in America. There are more than 50 miles of trails, more than 20 developed parks and over 5,500 acres of open space for residents and visitors to enjoy, making Castle Rock a regular on Money magazine’s top places to live list. As Castle Rock is slated to grow to more than 100,000 residents, the Town will continue to provide high-quality services while preserving the history and heritage of Castle Rock. At the same time, the Town will remain physically freestanding from the rest of the metro area.
