Future Park Planning

City of Castle Pines Park Designs

The City of Castle Pines is growing. With this growth, there is also a growing need for extraordinary park spaces for families within our community! As a result, the City is collaborating on two park project master plans: the rejuvenation and expansion of Coyote Ridge Park, and a new park known as Soaring Hawk Park. This master plan process is intended to incorporate the needs of the community so that everyone can play a part in the design of our local parks.Project Context Map showing the rejuvenation and expansion of Coyote Ridge Park, and a new park known as Soaring Hawk Park

As we move forward to strategize and craft this blueprint for our future, we will seek active involvement from residents. For such a plan to be effective, we want each demographic in Castle Pines to be represented. The only way for that to happen is for all residents, including children, to participate in the process.

Hord Coplan Macht (the City's landscape architect consultant) facilitated three interactive open house meetings (including a booth at Party in the Park) for families to attend in August 2023. A second round of public outreach began with a resident workshop at the Castle Pines Library on March 5. During this meeting, residents viewed concepts developed from the first round of outreach, provided feedback, and learned about next steps.

Public Engagement Results

The City and its design consultant believe in a ‘hands-on’ approach to the public process to actively engage in what proposed recreation amenities will be for both Coyote Ridge Park and Soaring Hawk Park. During the first part of the process, a variety of data collection techniques was used.  This included “dot-voting” on your preferred park amenities, a park survey, and a “Parks and Recreation Game Board” where you will get to build your own park.

Next Steps

After summarizing and reviewing resident feedback from the March 5 resident workshop and the March online survey, Hord Coplan Macht will work with the City's Parks and Recreation Advisory Board to develop final draft concepts. Final concepts are expected to be presented to City Council for final adoption this summer.

About Coyote Ridge Park

Coyote Ridge Park, spanning 40.5 acres, is an established park situated west of I-25. Presently, it offers a range of facilities such as a ball field, multi-use field, pickleball courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, shade structures, and a network of trails. As part of ongoing efforts to enhance the park's connectivity and accessibility, we are excited to announce an expansion plan that will incorporate approximately 11 acres of available land located southwest of the current site. This expansion aims to evaluate the desire and opportunity for additional park amenities to further enrich the park experience for visitors.

About Soaring Hawk Park

Soaring Hawk Park is an expansive 74-acre regional park that will be situated east of I-25, within The Canyons development, and south of the Rueter-Hess Reservoir. This land serves as a blank canvas, offering a remarkable opportunity for a master plan design. The City wants to engage with the community and gather input on the countless possibilities that can be explored within this space, catering to the diverse facets of the community, and continuing to create connections with this part of the city.
