Castle Rock, situated midway between Denver and Colorado Springs, is ideally located along the front range of the magnificent Rocky Mountains with an elevation of 6,202 feet above sea level.
Known for its mild temperatures, breath-taking scenery and rolling acres of buttes, mesas, and nature trails; Castle Rock is a wonderful place to visit and recreate. One of the fastest growing communities in the nation with a population of more than 55,000, Castle Rock is experiencing a steady growth in national retail chains, restaurants and hotels to better serve tourists and residents alike. The Town is home to the top-notch Douglas County School District and our children excel in our top quality schools, play in safe neighborhood parks and enjoy the friendliness of our home town charm.
What attracts residents to one of the fastest growing counties in the nation? It seems to be a combination of our breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains, our convenient location, dry and mild climate, 300 days of sunshine a year, our low crime rate, and a small town atmosphere which includes numerous annual family oriented events.
The town is situated 30 miles south of downtown Denver, 20 miles from the Denver Technological Center (DTC) and 35 miles north of Colorado Springs. Castle Rock’s close proximity to these urban centers, clean environment, natural beauty of the Colorado foothills and its accessibility to a wide range of recreational amenities make our town an attractive residential community. Castle Rock enjoys a robust real estate market.
As the county seat, Castle Rock boasts a quality of life that is hard to come by for many other metropolitan communities. Scattered with sprawling new residential developments and surrounded by rolling hills, it’s an idyllic setting for those who want to raise a family outside the city and enjoy the beautiful Colorado landscape.
