Are Swingsets Worth the Investment?

Are Swingsets Worth the Investment? May 11, 2022 12:00 pm

One of the main questions that potential customers ask us is if swingsets are worth the investment. Usually when this happens, one parent wants the swingset, while the other parent is worried that it is too expensive. After all, with public parks and school playgrounds available, how important is it to have a playground for your kids at home?

We sell swingsets, so we obviously think they are worth the investment. They give kids a safe place to play outdoors. They encourage kids to get outside and give parents the option of a safe outdoor play space without leaving the convenience of home. We think every household with children could benefit from having some type of playground.

To get the most out of your playground investment, you need to keep several things in mind.

  • What is your budget?

  • What are your family’s needs?

  • Where will you put the playground?

If you settle for a smaller playground, your big kids may not use it. On the flip side, many parents impulsively purchase huge playsets for their small children, meaning it will take years before the kids can actually enjoy playing on it.


First things, first. What is the budget for your swingset? We specialize in high-quality playsets that will last a lifetime. However, just because you do not have money to invest in a forever playground does not mean you have to forego adding a swingset to your yard. There are a number of starter swingsets you can get, especially for smaller children, which might be the right choice for your family, right now. However, if you have the money to invest, getting a swingset that can grow with your family will save you time, energy, and money in the long run.

What Are Your Family’s Needs?

Toddlers, preschoolers, elementary kids, and middle schoolers all have different playground needs. How big should the equipment be? Do you need baby-safe swings? Do you want climbing walls or fireman’s poles? Keep your family’s needs in mind while you are planning your swingset. If you have multiple children, older children, or children with various physical abilities, you may have to consider expanded needs.

Where Will You Put the Playground?

How much yard space do you have? We have potential customers come in all the time looking for the biggest and best playset, but without the yard space to install it properly. We can customize a great playset or offer great, smaller options that will fit into your yard. You do not have to get the biggest playground to have a great time.
