CPNMD Board of Directors Signs the Parks Trails and Open Space IGA with the City of Castle Pines


As of April 1st, 2023 The City of Castle Pines has taken over operations and maintenance of CPNMD parks, trails, open spaces and, storm water.


This is a great step for our community. You can visit the City website here.

This follows the June, 2022 decision by the CPNMD Board of Directors and the City Council to transfer CPNMD's stormwater responsibilities to the City of Castle Pines. The elimination of the overlap in land and stewardship responsibilities for the open and stormwater facilities streamlines our local government, resulting in an optimized level of service to the community.  

The City of Castle Pines will also handle all reservations for theses facilities. You can click here to make a reservation via the City's online scheduling tool. 

CPNMD’s Board of Directors and City Council have unanimously agreed that the City is most suited to take care of these valuable community amenities. City staff, contractors, and in-house professional horticulturists have been trusted with the stewardship of these responsibilities for the community’s beautiful network of outdoor parks, trails, and open space amenities throughout the City.  With this IGA, the City of Castle Pines has assumed responsibility for:

  • 352 acres of open space;
  • Fourteen miles of 8-foot wide trails
  • Three parks including Coyote Ridge Park, The Retreat Park, and Daniels Gate Park

Trail maps posted throughout the community help residents navigate our network of open space amenities.

Together these amenities provide natural buffers and native habitat for wildlife. They also enhance the quality of life for all residents, strengthen property values, and make our community an exceptional place to live.

We recognize the unique value of these open space assets and take the stewardship of these responsibilities seriously. For the health and safety of all residents, it is required  that dog owners pick up and properly dispose of their dog’s waste immediately. Horseback riding and all motorized vehicles (gas or electric) on all  parks, trails, and open space are STRICTLY prohibited.
