(Castle Pines, Colo.) After much anticipation, Castle Pines’ newest park and disc golf course is open to the public. Pronghorn Park and Disc Golf Course opened on Aug. 3 at 7707 Disc Park St., unveiling the new 18-hole course and miles of hiking and biking trails.
First announced over a year ago, the construction at Pronghorn Park is finished, and Castle Pines Mayor Tracy Engerman believes it was worth the wait.
“I’m thrilled to officially open Pronghorn Park and Disc Golf Course as the newest park amenity in Castle Pines,” she said.
“The course will be a great attraction for both the city and the rest of Douglas County.”
The project was completed as a partnership between Castle Pines and Douglas County, which contributed $300,000 to the park's construction and amenities.
“Funding for the county’s portion of this new park and disc golf course came from the voter-approved Parks and Open Space Sales Tax. We’re so grateful for this funding and for partnerships with our neighboring communities, like the City of Castle Pines,” Douglas County Commissioner George Teal said.
The disc golf course does not require reservations. Disc golf and the rest of the park amenities, including a sheltered picnic area and sweeping views of Castle Pines and the Rueter-Hess Reservoir, are free.
