Being a mom myself, I know how valuable it is to have your very own playset in the backyard. It keeps the children busy, gets them exercised and you get to do some things as well.
Many of the problems that parents have is that there just isn’t enough space for swing sets, slides and monkey bars in the yard. This may be true of swing sets made for big backyards, but there are actually a lot of kids swing sets for small yards that look just as good and offer the same kind of entertainment that bigger sets offer to kids.
Note: Do take note that ASTM standards for residential play systems say that you should allow at least 6 feet of space around all sides for safety purposes.
