Relocating to Colorado or simply seeking respite from Denver’s hustle and bustle? Homebuyers are flocking to Castle Pines, and for good reason: With 560 acres of open space and 74 park acres in just a 9.55 square mile area, this captivating city has dedicated itself to the preservation of the Centennial State’s natural beauty. That’s not all: Living in Castle Pines offers life’s modern conveniences including fine dining, grocery options, and exclusive shopping in the charming small town of Castle Rock.

If you’re planning to tour homes at The Canyons — Castle Pines’ premiere home community — make sure you consider the many pros of moving to this exciting Colorado location. Read on to learn more about your future homestead:

Rueter-Hess Reservoir
Rueter-Hess Reservoir is readily accessible from the Castle Pines Parkway exit off I-25. In this recreational playground, you’ll discover endless options for outdoor fun including paddleboarding, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and more.

Want to stay dry in the wintertime? Walk along the sandy lakeside or challenge yourself on its latest and greatest Incline installation. The 132-step incline and surrounding trails are open from sunup to sundown every day of the week.  A day spent outdoors is a day well-spent.

Tee Time at The Ridge
One of the many perks of golf: It’s naturally socially-distant and a safe way to spend an afternoon year-round.  The Ridge offers world-class greens that will tempt you, with 27 holes and sprawling views of the foothills, set amongst Gambel oaks and Ponderosa pines. This public golf course has received nationwide and statewide accolades from Golf Magazine, Golfweek, and Colorado Avid Golfer.  With an onsite restaurant available for dining within safety regulations, enjoy delicious food after you’ve played a round or two… or three… or four.

Thriving Wildlife
As Colorado becomes more populated, it’s very important to establish a balance with our neighbors — including mule deer, bobcats, mountain lions, and even bears. While it might seem wild in Castle Pines, the municipality is careful to protect its existing ecosystem.

Living in Castle Pines gives you the rare experience of raising your family to appreciate all Colorado has to offer. Spotting wildlife in its natural habitat is one of the many perks of living here. Prepare for your residency by brushing up on wildlife etiquette to ensure you treat nature with respect while enjoying your home.
