“We have elements here that will appeal to Coloradans. I think outdoor recreation, we have a play park that’s unparalleled with climbing towers and a dinosaur fossil pit for the youngest children,” said Les Morris with Simon Malls. “We have watering stations and waste stations so you can bring your four-legged friends all in a Lead-certified environment overlooking the mountains.”
