Saw this sign the other day, it's on C470 NW bound at the Soda lakes, didn't know Morrison was part of Lakewood.

Have you ever taken a good look at the Lakewood boundaries? It is possible, I think, to go in and out of Lakewood a couple of times by staying on the same road. And yes, there is a couple mile stretch of I-70 at Denver West that is within Lakewood boundaries, and the same thing on C-470 north of Morrison. And there appear to be at least two enclaves completely surrounded by Lakewood (one of them is the Federal Center).

The municipal boundaries along there are really strange. There is actually a sliver of land between Bandimere and the west side of C470 that is City of Lakewood. There's another Lakewood parcel - about 20 acres - up by Matthews/Winters Park west of 470.

I am sure that Morrison doesn't care as long as it has ownership of that 3 mile stretch of 285 :policecar:

Of course not, that's the revenue stream.

Bear Creek Lake Park is a Lakewood City park, I would imagine annexed land was part of the deal.

That Denver West area being part of Lakewood has to do with Colorado Mills Mall being a Lakewood property rather than Golden's. On several roads, if you look there will be posts labelled CB. Those are City Boundary marks for Lakewood. Installed a few m'self in the day.
