Ojai is about to get several new additions to the Libbey Park Playground.

This week I will be installing a giant 5 ton, 20 foot long lizard, a huge Ladybug and fun archway.

Be sure check back here in mid October. I will be posting a detailed blog of the entire build process including photos of the completed art, an image gallery of the installation (it’s not everyday you see a 5 ton lizard flying through the air) and details of the many components with explanations of the engineering and work that was required for this project.
