The top-notch Philip S. Miller Park in Castle Rock, Colorado provides destination recreation for locals as well as tourists and visitors.  The beautiful, new 237-acre regional park is being thoughtfully planned and executed over 10 years.  In the first phase, the Miller Activity Complex opened during fall 2014 with several one-of-a-kind features.  

A synthetic ski complex and a zip line operation are the two latest features in the works at the scenic park.  These exciting options highlight the adventurous nature of Castle Rock residents.  The Town of Castle Rock is requesting proposals from companies familiar with these industries.

The ski complex would span about 2.5 acres over a hillside.  Featuring layers of synthetic bristles and synthetic snow, this winter sports area could be operated all year round to accommodate skiers and snowboarders.  Several zip lines would be installed over canyons and valleys, some with obstacle courses and jungle gyms.  

The Philip S. Miller Park is already very popular.  The Miller Activity Complex includes 60,000 square feet of facilities.  It is nicknamed the MAC.  The MAC will include the only indoor fields in Castle Rock.  An indoor leisure/lap pool , and outdoor, lighted synthetic-turf field, parking, landscaping, and the basic infrastructure have been completed.  

Plans include more than 7 miles of single-track trails leading through four interconnected loops.  Some portions are paved.  Some outdoor fitness facilities are built-in, including a 200-step Challenge Staircase.  Future phases may include traditional play and athletic features, and outdoor amphitheater, pond, indoor event space, adventure playground and more trails.

Budgeting for this project has been the No. 1 priority for the Town of Castle Rock.  Estimates approach $30 million for the current master-plan.  Funds are being made available from both public and private sources.  The community enthusiastically participated in the planning process for the Philip S. Miller Park.
