Castle Rock

The “Castle Rock” towers above our beautiful town. You’ll find a range of people in Castle Rock – pioneers and newcomers; cowboys and technology whizzes; grandparents who’ve moved to be closer to their children’s families; and young families who’ve settled in this terrific school district and lovely neighborhood.

New to Douglas County?

In August, 2014, the Huffington Post noted that Douglas County was named the second best county in the United States to live in by Movoto, who noted we have the “highest graduation rate [and] lowest poverty rate of all the counties considered.” In Douglas County, we blend the old and the new, the urban and the rural. Castle Rock, the county seat, was settled by enterprising pioneers in the mid 19th century. Today, the area is home to the entrepreneurs who carry forward the pioneer legacy.  Spectacular views of the Rocky Mountains, affordable houses on wooded, rolling terrain, friendly, safe neighborhoods, award-winning schools, abundant recreational activities, and short commutes to the Denver Tech Center and downtown Denver all contribute to our quality of life. Whether you’re a young family who wants room to play, or an active retiree who wants to get away from it all (but remain close to some of it – your grandchildren, for example!), you’ll feel at home here.
