CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4)– Saturday in Castle Rock was a great day to spend some time outdoors. Even better if spent at a brand new park dedicated to a Douglas County deputy who lost his life in the line of duty.

Castle Rock Mayor Jason Gray says their newest park is top of the line.

“We have a mini zip line and an obstacle course. It’s like 5.6 acres,” said Gray.

Saturday, the Town of Castle Rock opened and dedicated the Zack S. Parrish III Memorial Park. It’s the town’s newest park and is named after one of the community’s heroes.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Deputy Zack Parrish was killed by a gunman on Dec. 31, 2017 while responding to a disturbance. Before that, Parrish was a Castle Rock police officer.

Castle Rock Chief of Police Jack Cauley says he left his mark on the community.

“He was very dedicated to our community and to serving others. He was some who had an innate ability to connect with people. He demonstrated every single day compassion and empathy toward others,” said Cauley.

So, it was no surprise to anyone that when Castle Rock asked what they should call their new park, the public wanted it named after Parrish. In addition to the massive jungle gym, zip line and bag toss area, there is also a memorial to Deputy Parrish and fallen officers.

Come check out this new and exciting of the many additions Castle Rock is making to ensure it's residents have everything they need to live a FULL and ADVENTUROUS life!
