Location: The Commons, 300 Washington Street






Columbus’ largest piece of public art and jungle gym. Structurally supported by five steel columns, 50 custom designed and fabricated curved plywood platforms interconnect to create a unique play space. The platforms are connected with six miles of coated stainless steel aircraft cable to provide additional support and a netting to create a safe climbing structure. Note the version of Dancing Cs and the city’s branding colors decorating the underneath of the plywood platforms.

Designed by Tom Luckey, a designer and architect,  the piece was installed by his son, Spencer Luckey.
