Reservations will be available for the trampolines, Functional Fitness area, pool and indoor fields. However, the play structure and toddler area will remain closed. Additionally, the furniture in the lobby area has been removed to prevent congregating. Reservations may be made up to 48 hours in advance at CRgov.com/Registration.
Staff is working to follow all State and local health department guidelines. With that in mind, masks will be required throughout the facility, except while in the pool. Lockers and showers will be available on a limited basis. And, cleaning protocols will be followed throughout the day and between reservation timeslots. It’s also important to note that walk-ins will not be allowed. And, children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult while in the facility.

Splash pads at Philip S. Miller and Festival parks are also open. Reservations are not required. Hours for both sites are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Please remember to practice social distancing and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet. Additionally, local health officials recommend wearing a face covering while in public. The intent remains to limit interactions to only those within your own household. Good hygiene - like not touching your face, and washing your hands well, and often - also remains important.
The pavilions at Philip S. Miller Park are the perfect location for your next get together. The four pavilions are located within the Plaza, which also houses a splash pad area, a community fire it area, public art sculpture and restroom facilities.
There is one large pavilion next to the splash pad area that boasts six picnic tables under the pavilion and six uncovered tables, which together, can accommodate approximately 120 people. This pavilion also overlooks a grassy area perfect for yard games or relaxing with friends and family.
Additionally, there are three pavilions located west of the restroom building and north of the synthetic-turf field. The lower pavilion hosts two outdoor fireplaces that are activated by a timer. The two lower pavilions have eight picnic tables each and can accommodate approximately 80 people each plus wall seating. The third upper pavilion has six tables and can accommodate approximately 60 people each plus wall seating.
Gas grills are allowed, however charcoal grills are not. Please note, at times, Town fire restrictions may prohibit the use of grills. Visit the Town’s fire restrictions page for more information.
Access the park pavilion online request. This form can be used for pavilion rentals at any of our park pavilions.
The pricing structure is $160 per pavilion per 4-hour time block (must be booked in 4-hour increments). For two pavilions, a 10 percent discount will be offered. For three or more pavilions, a 20 percent discount will be offered.
If interested in reserving a pavilion, please send at least two possible dates and time blocks. Also include the pavilion(s) you are interested in. We will contact you with availability.
In addition to the pavilions, the Plaza area also contains indoor restroom facilities, a splash pad area, a community fireplace area featuring the legacy brick program and a public art sculpture.
The Legacy Brick Program is an opportunity to cast your name in stone in the Core Plaza. The Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation raises money from the Legacy Brick Program to fulfill the mission of enhancing the spaces that make Castle Rock unique.
Please note: there are several large events booked for Philip S. Miller Park this year. Parking is limited for events and general park / MAC use. Therefore, reservations are staggered to allow for general usage. We recommend carpooling.
Pavilions are available for general use when not reserved by another party.
Reserve the Pavilions!
