Kirkegaard, Judy Wieboldjaywalkers often chance it and traverse mid- parkway just to save a minute or two.City of Castle Pines Public Works Director Eric Guth had this to comment: “We are always con- cerned about the safety and welfare of the users. No parking is allowed on the arterial or collec- tor roads.” Translation being ... don’t park on Castle Pines Parkway or Monarch Boulevard unless you want to be cited or towed.According to Guth, the sledding hill land is actually owned and maintained by the Castle Pines North Metropolitan District, but the street maintenance is managed by the city with traffic enforcement conducted by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. Parking is legal on nearby residential streets, including Shoreham Drive and Tangleoak Lane.Guth went on to say, “We would like to encour- age residents to park at The Retreat Park park- ing lot, since it’s a designated parking area and is also on the correct side of the road.”It is best to keep safety priority one when play- ing in the snow, and residents are encouraged to review a few safety tips before venturing out. Go to and read “Snow-filled fun” on the home page.Last, but far from least, have fun! Family fun in the snow has been a Colorado tradition for generations. If sledding down hills is not your thing, find fun ways to play in the snow with family and friends a bit closer to home, like the Meisner family did in their backyard in Winterberry (pictured below left to right: Nancy, Ryan and Allyson).Photo provided by Nancy MeisnerThe Castle Pines CONNECTIONThe Castle Pines Connection, LLC  7437 Village Square Lane, Suite 220  Castle Rock, CO 80108  303-785-6520  Volume 3, Number 2c Copyright - The Castle Pines Connection, LLC, 2011.Reproduction or use, without permission, of editorial, graphic or photo content in any manner is strictly prohibited.The Castle Pines Connection is published monthly for Castle Pines North and surrounding communities.
