What I like about Castle Pines the most is the neighborhood aspect. For the most part everybody I have met has been very nice and welcoming and the neighborhood is very nice and clean. The only thing that I do not love about the neighborhood it the gaslight lack of places to go. We only have a couple restaurants and places to go within our neighborhood otherwise we have to drive at least 15-20 minutes North to Highlands Ranch or South to Castle Rock to do other things. Overall, Castle Pines has been a wonderful place to live and a place I have had the opportunity to live in for the past 11 years. I would highly recommend this neighborhood to families with children as we have several great schools and parks!

Wonderful small, quiet community, very close to all conveniences! Elementary school are great (especially the charter), but middle school, high school is just average. Raised two kids here and would recommend it.
Safe and beautiful place to live in the suburbs. There are trails and parks all over the place. Not far from Castle Rock or Park Meados Mall and the Lone Tree area so everything you need is in a 5 mile radius. If you enjoy nightlife and ethnic diversity, you arent going to find that here.
