When most people think of playgrounds, they typically think of a swing set, but there are more options to outfit your playground than a few swings. You can mix and match playground equipment to create a play environment that is a perfect place for all ages to play.


A playset is a great outdoor playground option that can include features such as swings, slides, monkey bars, and more. These outdoor playhouses can be made of plastic, metal, or wood and can be a separate purchase or come joined to a play system.

Climbing bars

Climbing bars are a great way to add vertical fun to your playground. They can be used as standalone outdoor playground equipment or added to an existing playset or swing set.

Seesaws and teeter-totters

These are classic outdoor playground equipment pieces that have been around for generations. Seesaws and teeter-totters are great for both children and adults to bounce back and forth and get some of that energy out!

Jungle gyms

This outdoor obstacle course is perfect for those adventure-seeking kids! A jungle gym can be made of metal, plastic, or wood and include features such as trapeze bars and slides.

DIY vs. pre-made playground equipment

Do you have the expertise and time to design and create a new playset for your children, or would you prefer to purchase a pre-made set for your outdoor playground? There are pros and cons to both approaches.

If you're handy and have some carpentry skills, you may want to consider building a playset yourself. This will allow you to customize the features and design of the set to fit your specific backyard space. However, building a playground set can be a time-consuming and expensive project.

If you don't have the time or expertise to build a playground set yourself, purchasing a pre-made set is the way to go. There are many different outdoor playground equipment options available on the market. Brands such as Little Tikes, KidKraft, or Gorilla playsets offer a great variety of playsets, so you're sure to find something that fits your budget and backyard space.

What play structures are best for the backyard?

If you are in the market to purchase a play structure for your children, consider a few factors first:

Yard space

How much room do you have in your backyard for a play structure? You'll want to make sure that you measure the space before making any purchase.


How much money are you willing to spend on outdoor playground equipment? There is a wide range of prices for play structures, so it's important to set a budget before beginning your search.

Age of children

What age range of children are you looking to purchase for? This is important to consider because different age groups will need different types of equipment.
