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!

Castle Pines is a very quiet little town! Not much going one so it's very peaceful, it would be great to have more local shops or hangout areas that cater more towards teens but what we currently have is also very nice.
Castle Pines is a beautiful city with houses surrounded by pools, tennis and basketball courts, rolling hills and magnificent scenery. Friendly smiles and waves inhabit almost every household; gorgeous homes look out over scenic sprawls of land and a sense of community is always present in every nook and cranny.
