Castle Pines needs more shops and local restaurants. Rents are very high which keeps businesses away. Many retail establishments that have been closed have never been replaced. There is a large Safeway grocery store that closed 5 plus years ago. It is still empty, which looks bad. There is only one area with retail and restaurants for a very large community. The schools are wonderful and the area is beautiful. There are trails for biking and hiking throughout the community.

Overall good experience, however, the construction on roads and other similar activities take a long time to finish and usually leave the area worse off then it started. Also wish there was a gym in the area!
I grew up here and love it! I don’t think there is a better location in Colorado. It’s right by Colorado Springs, castle rock, highlands ranch, englewood, and denver
