Castle Rock Recreation

Castle Rock’s recreation department has many great ways for you to get fit this year…and have fun while doing it!

If you thought Parks and Rec was just some great sports leagues and a way to hit the gym, you don’t know Castle Rock Parks and Recreation!

Miller Park.

During this time of year, it’s not always easy (or advantageous) to hit the trails or take advantage of the amazing outdoor amenities, which makes it the PERFECT time to check out all there is to do at both the MAC and Recreation Center!
