STREET SIDE PATIO

Before the DDA was incorporated, the Town of Castle Rock and several interested business owners brought in consultants from Walkable Communities Inc. to help make Downtown more walkable and pedestrian friendly. Wider sidewalks and street side patios contribute to a thriving downtown and the program consistently receives positive feedback from businesses and the community. 

CARRIAGE RIDES

The Downtown Merchants Association, in partnership with the Town of Castle Rock, provides low cost carriage rides every Wednesday through Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas for the holiday season. Carriage rides help increase visitor traffic and activate Downtown during the slower, winter months. The rides take community members on a short route through historic Downtown to view the spectacular holiday lights.
