Miller Activity Complex
The Miller Activity Complex is currently being used exclusively for summer camp programming and is not open to the general public. The Town received approval from the Tri-County Health Department to operate licensed day camps. All camps are now open and registration is currently available. More information is available at CRgov.com/Camps.
Outdoor pools and splash pads
Burgess and Butterfield Crossing pools are currently open. Reservations are available online 48-hours in advance.
Make a reservation
Splash pads at PSM and Festival parks are also open. Reservations are not required. Hours for both sites are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Please remember to practice social distancing and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet. Additionally, local health officials recommend wearing a face covering while in public. The intent remains to limit interactions to only those within your own household. Good hygiene - like not touching your face, and washing your hands well, and often - also remains important.
Information on our programs is available on the Adaptive Recreation registration page.
The Adaptive Recreation program also partners with our race and fitness divisions to bring two amazing fundraising events; Climb4Change in April and the Glow Dance Party in September. The purpose of these events is to raise funding for the Town’s Adaptive Recreation program.
We were honored to help host the Night to Shine event (prom for individuals with special needs) on Friday, Feb.7, 2020 in partnership with Castle Oaks Church and the Wellspring Community. This was the first time the dance was ever been held in Castle Rock - serving many of our families and Adaptive Recreation participants in their hometown! Plus, we received a $6,500 grant from the Tim Tebow Foundation to help pay for this event.
Watch the video to see why we are so excited about this event!
