What child doesn't want a swing set or playground? As a parent you would like a safe place for your children to play and get out all of that harnessed energy. Why go to a public playground and have to spend time in the car getting to the playground when you can go out the door of your own home and have a safe play area ready all of the time? Also, who knows what other children and parents will be at the playground that you will have to interact with? And, how can you know if the area is clean?
Now that we've established that a play area at home might suit you best, which would you want: a swing set or a playground? You might be asking, "What is the difference?"
A traditional swing set is mainly a typical a-frame unit that securely holds 3-5 swings, trapeze bars, and horse gliders. This allows the child to swing securely with other children alongside. Some newer swing sets have a tower at one side of the a-frame that has a look out deck with a ladder entry and a plastic slide exit. Some of the towers we offer get pretty elaborate with rock walls, rope climbs, gang planks, fire pole, monkey bars, and telescopes to check on the perimeter play area. Most of our swing sets have a canvas canopy covering the tower to allow for a shady retreat from the Summer sun.
A playground is usually a structure shaped like a boat, castle, airplane, monster truck, 4x4, or tractor. The structure shape allows more versatility of play due to it's inner compartments. The boat and castle playgrounds have a upper and lower deck and the lower deck could be like a hide out that allows the playground to be like a hide out or a place to hide from parents needing the daily chores completed. Playgrounds also have slides and a-frame attachments that have the added feature of swings as part of the whole unit.
