Live The Colorado Lifestyle in Castle Rock

Living in The Meadows, you’re never far from the gleaming buildings of the Denver skyline – but you’re even closer to a small town way of life. The rustic brick buildings in downtown Castle Rock hint at the town’s Old West roots.

Today, the Castle Rock area offers a lot of activities with easy parking, close-to-home dining, and quaint boutiques. July through October there’s also a farmer’s market every Saturday. In the summer, check out the Douglas County Fair for cotton candy, horse shows, tractor pulls, and, of course, the rodeo. Year-round recreation and activities can be found at the Castle Rock Recreation Center, Castle Rock Senior Center, and Castlewood Canyon State Park. But you don’t have to go far, The Meadows Neighborhood Company also hosts community events right in your own backyard.

The Colorado High Country

The one activity that everyone identifies with the Colorado lifestyle is skiing and there is plenty of it near The Meadows. The fluffy snow found in the nearby Rockies has made the state a famous destination for skiers and snowboarders. There are dozens of ski resorts in Colorado, but locals often buy one of two season passes. You can also enjoy Colorado lifestyle activities such as snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, and ice fishing!

It wouldn’t be the Colorado lifestyle without the mountains. The mountains provide year-round recreation, offering cool summertime temperatures that are perfect for fishing, hiking, biking, and rock climbing. And in the fall, the vibrant colors of Aspen foliage are a stunning sight, perfect for an afternoon drive.
