Parks, Trails & Open Space

Parks, Trails, and Open Space

The people of Castle Pines entrust CPNMD’s board of directors and in-house professional horticulturists with stewardship responsibilities for the community’s beautiful network of outdoor parks, trails, and open space amenities west of I-25. The outdoor amenities include:

  • 352 acres of open space;
  • Fourteen miles of 8-foot wide trails; and
  • Three parks including Coyote Ridge Park, The Retreat Park, and Daniels Gate Park.

Trail maps posted throughout the community help residents navigate our network of open space amenities.

Together these amenities provide natural buffers and native habitat for wildlife. They also enhance the quality of life for all residents, strengthen property values, and make our community an exceptional place to live.

We recognize the unique value of these open space assets and take our stewardship responsibilities seriously. For the health and safety of all residents, we respectfully insist that dog owners pick up and properly dispose of their dog’s waste immediately. We strictly prohibit horseback riding and all motorized vehicles (gas or electric) on CPNMD’s parks, trails, and open space.
