Jacks and Jaws

Outside the Douglas County Library in Parker are two giant, shiny jacks and a red ball just waiting for a giant child to pick up and play. But be careful. A blue shark bike rack is swimming nearby, looking for a tasty treat!

The Jacks' bronze plaque lists "appropriate behavior" when it comes to relating to this 2016 sculpture -- possibly because they resemble modern playground equipment. No climbing or skateboarding on the art.
