After years of planning and fundraising, work has finally started on the construction of the new Castle Rock entrance and facilities.
Led by Sempervirens Fund, Phase 1 of the project will include a new parking area, restrooms with flush toilets, new trail connections, a picnic area and an outdoor amphitheater for up to 60 people educational presentations and other events.
At PCRF’s Board of Directors meeting on 9/14, Lauren Chavez, Project Manager at Sempervirens Fund who oversees the Castle Rock entrance project, spoke to us about details of the project. We discussed PCRF’s interests in promoting and recruiting volunteers to help as docents and with trail construction, as well as continuing to sell items with interpretive value at the new site.

It is estimated that the site will open in the summer 2018, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the park. Click here to sign up for our email newsletter to get updates on this project.
