Family Recreation

Set in the heart of suburban Castle Pines North, Elk Ridge Park offers the kind of community park that Coloradoans cherish: family recreation. Although the park is only 11 acres, it provides something for every generation, from the synthetic turf field to the hidden natural valleys.

A mesa top with a bridged causeway separates an extensive playground area from the surrounding natural and wild beauty. Looped trails lead to educational nodes and play events; climbing walls surround the park. The environment includes cultural art, natural vistas, picnic shelters, and a water play area with a hidden waterfall. Multi-generational play is the goal of this park, helping whole families relax and enjoy the outdoors together.

Scavenger Hunt that Brings Wayfinding to Life

Throughout the park there are wayfinding signs that lead visitors on a Colorado scavenger hunt. Riddles, symbols, and rhymes lead from one clue to another and reveal Colorado history.
