Castle Rock, Colorado

Castle-Rock-BoundariesThe Town of Castle Rock is the county seat of Douglas County and is named for the prominent castle tower shaped butte near the center of town. Originally a small mining town, this community has grown rapidly in the past two decades and the population now exceeds 53,000. Located only 15 minutes south of the Denver Tech Center, many of Castle Rock’s residents work in Denver’s southeast business corridor.

With a reputation for small town hospitality, this community has received recognition by numerous national publications as one of the best places to live, work and play. The historic downtown business district has many one-of-a-kind restaurants and boutiques, and the Outlets of Castle Rock is a destination outlet mall with over 100 shops and restaurants. Known for its mild temperatures, beautiful scenery and rolling acres of buttes, mesas and nature trails, Castle Rock is a prime location for those looking for a smaller town residential setting and relatively easy access to major employment centers. In Money magazine’s 2014 ranking of the best small cities to live in, Castle Rock came in at No. 4. “Castle Rock has come a long way from its quarry-town roots” the magazine noted. “The city is growing at a rapid clip, with a population that has more than tripled in the past 15 years.”

Major housing developments include The Meadows, Founders Village, Castle Pines, Plum Creek, Red Hawk Ridge, Castlewood Ranch, Bell Mountain Ranch, Diamond Ridge, Sapphire Point and more. All of Castle Rock lies within the boundaries of the Douglas County School District.
