The Metzler Property in Castle Rock, Colorado was preserved today through the generous donation by the Estate of Robert F. Metzler of 60 acres of land to the Town of Castle Rock and a conservation easement to Douglas Land Conservancy (DLC) on 49 of those acres. The Metzler Property is located along Founders Parkway and Crowfoot Valley Road in a rapidly developing area of the Town and will serve existing and new residents in the area with scenic views and a new trail system. The remaining 11 acres of the property is planned for use as a community and educational facility with a parking lot to access the trail system. The conserved portion of the property also contains the original homestead and ranch buildings including an historic silo. Congratulations to DLC, the Estate and the Town on their collaboration to preserve the Metzler property!
