Excellence in wooden playgrounds
More than just a swing set, more than just a jungle gym, more than just a tree house. The companies listed on our site specialize in wooden playsets that are sure to challenge and excite children. Why wood? From small dramatic play structures to elaborate park-sized playscapes, wooden playgrounds have a lot to offer. They generally support more weight, last longer and are usually guaranteed from 10 to 25 years. Their rustic appeal can bring children back to nature, allowing them to fully enjoy the world around them. Or they bring appreciation to a world unknown to children in pavement-covered cities. Wood is a natural insulator, never getting too hot or too cold, and the latest trends in the wood playground industry include a movement toward safer wood treatments that are tested with children and the environment in mind.
When choosing a material for your playground design, you have two main options in conjunction with plastic: wood and metal.
