Philip S. Miller Park: Find Your Adventure
A Safe Place for Fun
Throughout the last few months, we’ve all tried to find an escape from our homes and break from the news about the pandemic. In Castle Rock and The Meadows, we have our own little escape. It comes in the way of over 320 acres at Philip S. Miller Park. There’s plenty of space for social distancing and offers activities for everyone.
If you’re hungry for a workout, you must take the trip up the 200 steps at the Challenge Hill. Your legs will be burning, but the views from the top are worth the sweat. The hill is a favorite workout spot among fitness enthusiasts.
Fitground Outdoor Fitness Park
If the Challenge Hill doesn’t get your blood pumping, you can go across the street to the new Fitground Outdoor Fitness Park. It’s perfect for those looking for a full-body workout. The fitness park has equipment for wall climbs, over-under bars, cargo net climbs, battle ropes, and more.
Bikers and hikers can explore the 7.4-mile network of single-track native surface trails. The Philip S. Miller Park trails are ideal for all levels.
Days of Adventure
If you want to take your kids on an adventure, the park features a 2.5-acre Adventure Playground complete with 40-foot slide.
Soar Through The Park
Amp up your day with Castle Rock Zip Line Tours. Soar over the park on ten different zip lines. If that’s not enough, check out their Epic Adventure Tower that includes a 40ft climbing wall, zip and jump from a 40-foot platform and freefall from their 70-foot platform. The adventure doesn’t stop there, check out the Epic Sky Trek. This three level challenge course features 110+ challenges that take you up and through the course. If you’ve ever thought about trying the tricks you see on American Ninja Warrior – this is your chance. Experience the adventure for yourself.
