COVID-19 Update

  1. In order to comply with federal, state and health department requirements, and to provide all of our guests with a safer recreation experience, we have modified our daily operations at the Recreation Center (REC) and the MAC.  

    All guests will be required to register for a specific time slot to their participation at the REC and the MAC.  Walk-in and drop in participation will only be permitted based on facility and/or program area capacity and availability. Please see our online calendar widget (click the gear for filters) or check out the RockRec App to view specific area calendars for availability.

    Guest may arrive at any time during their reserved timeslot, however, all guests must exit the facility upon the conclusion of their specific registration time regardless of their arrival time.

    Guests will be permitted to travel between activity areas, however moving equipment from other areas is not permitted. Certain amenities may require additional reservations and/or fees to access. Please see the MAC or REC front desk for more details.

    In addition to signing up for a timeslot, each guest will need to purchase a guest pass, use your membership or multi-visit pass to utilize the facility.

    Reservations open 2 days prior to their scheduled start.

The Town boasts 50 developed parks; more than 6,000 acres of open space (roughly half of which is owned by the Town) and 87 miles of trails; an award winning 18-hole golf course, Red Hawk Ridge, that is Audubon Sanctuary Certified; indoor and outdoor pools and splash pads; and an 84,000-square-foot Recreation Center and the new 60,000-square-foot Miller Activity Complex at Philip S. Miller Park, featured in Parks & Rec Business Magazine

Philip S. Miller Park features the 200-step Challenge Hill. On average, more than 30,000 fitness and trail enthusiasts alike flock to the timber steps that rise 178 feet in elevation every month. The Millhouse and Amphitheater at Philip S. Miller Park are the perfect backdrop for celebrating life's moments and hosting corporate retreats. 

The park also features 
Castle Rock Zip Line Tours as part of a public-private partnership. Residents and tourists alike enjoy 10 zip lines, the Epic Sky Trek and the Epic Adventure Tower. Standing 70-feet tall, the tower allows users to scale a 40-foot climbing wall, zip and jump from a 40-foot platform or choose to free fall from a 70-foot platform, while protected by state-of-the-art auto belay devices. The Epic Sky Trek, an aerial trekking course with three levels, features over 110 challenging obstacle elements. 2017 saw 25,000 thrill-seeking visitors, and more than 500 residents and local businesses hosted team-building activities. 

The wait is over - the re-imagined Festival Park in the heart of downtown Castle Rock is now open! This central gathering place has been transformed into a vibrant urban park and will host the community's most treasured events. 

The Parks and Recreation Department is a proud member of the Rueter-Hess Recreation Authority. This partnership is working to bring programmed and self-directed recreational opportunities to the Rueter-Hess Reservoir

Don't forget to check out the Town's event calendar and online program list! We'll be offering lots of concerts, activities and family-friendly events throughout the year at our facilities.
