Future Park Planning

Help the Town choose Castle Rock's next neighborhood park location.

The Parks and Recreation Department is starting the process of systematic analysis and public outreach to determine site selection priorities for the next neighborhood park. In addition to presenting research and analysis data to the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Department will host two public presentations in August to share this information with residents and garner feedback. 

If you are unable to attend the public presentations, but would like to offer input, please submit an online form
