7 Things Your Family Swing Set Must Have

There are few things better than getting the whole family outdoors — away from the captivating glare of phones, TVs, and laptops. Enjoying the good weather and having some active outdoor fun just can’t be beat — even internet addicts have to agree! That’s where a family swing set or playset comes in as the perfect centerpiece for all your backyard fun.

At Adventure World Play Sets, we know the value of family time, and that’s why we build exciting and unique playsets designed for families to enjoy together! In today’s blog, we’re highlighting our family swing sets that are perfect for swinging together, sliding, running around, and playing outdoor games. So, if you’re wondering what this set looks like, you’re in the right place — see examples of our favorite sets and let’s dive right in!

What to Look for in a Family Playset

You’ll love the joy and exhilaration your kids experience having high-energy fun on your family playset. In order for the set to fit the bill, though, there are a few boxes it needs to check. Here’s what you’re looking for:

  1. Enough Room for Everyone — First and foremost, the perfect family playset will be big enough to accommodate your whole family. After all, the whole point of playing outside together is to not let anyone be left out! Many of our playsets are big enough that everyone can play on a slide or a swing, so you won’t have to worry about any tussles over whose turn it is!

  2. Ability to Accommodate Different Styles of Play — Different kids means different styles of play. While some might favor heart-pumping exercise, others might prefer quiet imagination games. The right playset accommodates both. For example, our sets come with slides and swings of course — and also with sandboxes, playhouses and hidden huts to foster imaginative play. You can tailor your swing set accessories to the exact way your children like to have fun.
  3. Usable by Kids of Multiple Ages — If you have a big family, then chances are you have kids at lots of different ages and play abilities. The right family playset truly doesn’t leave anyone out. You can custom design your set to have both baby swings for the little ones — and faster paced options like rock walls, overhead climbers, an array of swings for older kids and other athletic sections for your kids as they get older. The perfect playset will be just as exciting to your older kids as much as to the younger ones.
  4. The Ability to Be Upgraded Over Time — One of the things that truly sets Adventure World Playsets apart from other manufacturers is that our completed swing sets can always be upgraded with additional accessories and swing set towers. That means as the family grows and the interests change, you can customize the family swing set to match!
  5. A Long Lifespan — If you want your set to be the cornerstone of family fun through everyone’s childhood and early adolescence, you’re going to need a swing set that lasts a long time. At Adventure World Play Sets, all of our play sets are designed to last for several decades — without ever needing to be re-stained, re-painted, or repaired.

  6. Safety — As parents, safety is always on our minds. That’s why the best family swing set is also going to be the safest. Not only are Adventure World Play Sets pieces built extremely sturdy, they are also completely cased in vinyl, meaning no splinters ever.

  7. Adult Inclusion — It wouldn’t be a true family swing set if anyone was left out — and that means you, too! Right off the bat, our swing beams are rated to hold 2,000 pounds of pressure, and our swings are strong enough for grown-ups to enjoy as well. Plus, we sell dedicated adult seats and swings for adults that will allow you to relax while spending time with the kids!

You will not be disappointed with these sets! We have had one for 11 years now, just washed it off with soap and a garden hose after winter and looks like it did when new! It might seem like quite an investment upfront but is worth it. We bought when we had our first son and now have 4 kids playing on it! Our grandkids will use this set someday. Worth every dollar we spent on it!
