Castle Pines

The town is careful to protect the ecosystem’s delicate balance, so get used to the occasional bear sunning itself in your driveway. 

Welcome to Castle Pines

 
Wealthy, quiet enclave just north of Castle Rock, reaching 1,000 feet higher than the Mile High City of Denver
 
Although it's only been in existence since 2008, Castle Pines has become a part of the fabric of Colorado. Castle Pines is small, just under ten square miles, but within that charming space are 560 open acres and 74 acres of parkland, beautiful estate homes, and sweeping Rocky Mountain vistas. 
 

What to Love

  • Secluded and private

Local Lifestyle

It's no secret that the Colorado Rockies are full of wildlife, but new residents to Castle Pines are a bit surprised to find mountain lions and bobcats living in the most exclusive gated neighborhoods. The town is careful to protect the ecosystem’s delicate balance, so get used to the occasional bear sunning itself in your driveway. That said, Castle Pines is a small town with a lot of sophisticated city polish.
 

Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping

Park Meadows Retail Resort in Lone Tree is the go-to shopping center for everyday necessities and services such as banking, opticians, and housewares. The Outlets at Castle Rock have brands like Arcteryx, Windsor Jewelers, and J A Henckels. 
 
Some of the best beef in the Rockies is in Castle Pines, in a restaurant named for a prize bull — Duke's Steakhouse. When you crave a burger and a beer, give the Berg Haus a try. It's a quintessential sports bar with a great selection of rotating beers on tap. 
 
When you need a latte, the Exchange Coffee House at the Canyons is the place to go to avoid the fast-food equivalent of your morning joe. It's the rare coffee house that boasts a chef de cuisine alongside the barista. 
 
Castle Pines is a relatively quiet community where residents prize privacy and security, so there isn't much in the way of nightlife here. Most residents choose to entertain at home rather than go out to restaurants and clubs. When you want a big night out, Denver is only 20 miles away. 
 

Things to Do

Golf is more popular in Castle Pines than in other Denver area. Here you’ll find two golf courses in a town of 10,000 residents. The Ridge is a Tom Weiskopf course with 27 holes that the golf gurus at Golfweek, Golf Digest, and Golf have designated one of Colorado's best courses, if not the best overall. 
 
Castle Pines is a members-only club, but if you join, you'll have access to a Jack Nicklaus course sitting atop a rocky ridge with panoramic views of pristine Colorado beauty. 
 
East Plum Creek is a local favorite for bass, carp, and bluegill. Or, you can head towards Chatfield State Park and the reservoir, where you can drop a line for walleye, crappie, or bluegill from the shore or a boat. 
 
Daniels Gate Park is a great place for a hike, with five miles of trails but also several shorter hikes if you're just out for a stroll. The Village at Castle Pines has built 11 miles of trails for runners and walkers through the neighborhoods.
