Reminders and Resources for Dog Owners in Castle Pines

We take great pride in caring for the outdoor amenities we own and manage on behalf of our community – and we want to make sure that all residents and their four-legged friends continue to enjoy them.

To ensure a safe and fun visit, we’ve complied the most relevant laws for Douglas County dog owners below.

  • Dogs must be on a leash when off the owner’s property, except when walking in a designated off-leash area.
  • Dog owners must pick-up and properly dispose of pet waste.
  • Dog owners must ensure that their pet doesn’t bite, chase, injure, bark or disturb anyone.

If Fido needs more room to roam, head to nearby Glendale Farm Open Space. It’s a 17-acre, off-leash dog park just down the road from our community, two miles north of I-25 and Castle Pines Parkway on S. Havana St.

If you experience any problems with an off-leash dog, please contact Douglas County Animal Control at (303) 660-7495. For more information about rules and regulations, and a map of all off-leash facilities in Douglas County, click here.

We look forward to seeing you outside!
