Animals of Pokemon

Animals of Pokemon

Did you know many of the characters from Pokemon were inspired by real animals? For example, Froakie is based on a frog and Pidgey is based on a pigeon. 

 During this free and unique event, learn about the real defense strategies animals use to protect themselves, find shelter and find food. There will be five live animal ambassadors inspired by the show and games! 

Join us from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7 at the Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park. Pre-registration is encouraged - walk-ins are welcome as space allows.

Rock Park Rezoning Public Meeting

Public Meeting for Rock Park Proposed Zoning Change

The Town of Castle Rock is hosting a public meeting, 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7 so residents can learn about a proposition to rezone Rock Park and officially define the Town's namesake as a "natural area."

Rock Park is currently zoned as Single-Family Residence District (R-1). The primary use within R-1 districts is detached, single-family homes. The new proposed zone classification, the PL-3 District, will better align the park's permitted uses with the activities and facilities that currently exist on the park site, such as the trail, the Star and the flagpole. Currently, there are no proposed changes to the property - just an update in its zoning classification.
