Forest Park is a small gated neighborhood in the City of Castle Pines, CO. It comprises 287 homes and homesites with sizes ranging from 4000 square feet to a little less than two acres.
The subdivision’s name accurately describes what this exclusive community is all about. Forest Park was carved out of a natural forest with centuries-old rock formations and abundant wildlife.
The preservation of the surrounding forest and co-existence with the area’s native vegetation and wildlife is Forest Park’s defining feature. A restrictive community covenant requires every homeowner to look after their part of the forest, and prohibits the disturbance of native natural elements outside individual property boundaries.
The subdivision has minimal formal landscaping and street lighting. There are no sidewalks, but there are plenty of large and small open spaces, including wildlife corridors and conservation easements.
Living in Forest Park, it’s easy to forget you’re just minutes away from big city comforts. The neighborhood is adjacent to the prestigious The Ridge at Castle Pines Golf Course. Downtown Castle Pines is within walking distance, and Metro Denver and its exciting urban attractions are only around 25 miles away.

In addition to individual property boundaries, each lot comes with a pre-determined building envelope.

The area outside the building envelope must be kept in pristine condition as much as possible.
