Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carlene The BEST Play Set!
Can't say enough about the quality of this play set! My 3 y/o granddaughter is thrilled! The materials are very high quality. Perfect size for a small backyard but there's no skimping on features. Highly recommend hiring a handyman to put it up. We did and it took 2 men and 2 part time guys about 8 hrs. to get it done. When the boxes arrived, we had 3 damaged pieces. Home Depot & Gorilla were fantastic and got the replacement pieces out same day and we received within 3 days! You can't go wrong with this awesome play set!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigJ35 Quality product that the kids love
This is a great Gorilla playset! The kids love it. I did hire a professional to install it - two installers took roughly 8 hours to complete it. It was well worth it though, probably would have taken me two days to do it and would've ended up with extra parts! Our kids and the neighborhood kids use all the features, and have a great time with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 3KidsMom nice addition to a small backyard
I have done quite a lot research before I decided on Riverview playset.
The reasons that I choose Riverview over other options are
1. It has higher 5 feet play deck, so the kids can play for years, even when they are getting taller. I am very happy after we have it installed. I can sit on the picnic table inside of the playset without ducking my head. Then I know my girls will not outgrow it because of the height.
2. our lot is less than 0.25 acre, I don't want a huge set that would eat up 1/3 of my back yard. Yet, I prefer not to sacrifice the nice features. Riverview is just the right combination. It has quite compact foot print, yet a lot to give. Especially, it has extended picnic table, 4 kids can sit together comfortably.
3. Quality. I have three kids, age from 1-4. I wish the playset can last at least for 5 years. I am pretty happy with the quality of the wood and construction. All the parts look sturdy and strong.
Finally, I would suggest hiring someone to install it, if you are not handy. It took two professional assemblers to install it in 4 hours, non-stop. They have 20 years experience in installing playsets, trampolines, pool table and etc. One guy organized the parts into small groups in the first 30 mins without reading the manual. The other guy started assembling immediately. That being said, it would take a couple weekends to install it, if you want to DIY.
My twins(will be 4 in two weeks) have spent a lot time in the backyard since the playset is installed. They go to the playset directly after they are back from preshcool and keep playing there till dinner time.
VERY happy with the purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daughterlovesit My daughter is in love!!!
My 3 1/2 year old absolutely loves this swing set! It took a total of 24 hours to put the swing set together, but it was a weekend well spent! The house on top is huge! We have had several lunch picnics in there! The swing set is extra sturdy and every part is used daily! It was a bit expensive, but I chose to get more options (sliding board, rock wall, swings, hanging bar, rope climb, ladder, windows that open and close) because I didn't want my daughter to grow out of it quickly! Awesome addition to the backyard!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Riverviewreview awesome playset
I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of this swing set. My kids love this. It's hard to get them to come in, they just want to swing and slide all day. From start to finish it took about 20 hours. I didn't have any help which isn't advised since the swing beam and fort sides are a little heavy. Although they recommend predrilling all the boards I was pleasantly surprised that they were already all done. Once this play set was complete it is very solid and a beautiful addition to our backyard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrianS Very nice set
It did take 15 hours to put together but no problems. Only need two people for the initial steps as you need two people lifting the heavy posts. The rest can be done independently. The instructions were pretty good which always help. The build quality is great. I am very pleased with this set and also happy that I did not buy a cheap set after seeing the issues my friends went through with theirs. I can tell this set will last many years as long as it is taken care of with water treatment and stain. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nonna79 Great for Grandkids!
After much research we chose this play set for the grandkids the oldest of which is 7. My husband put it together in his spare time after work over the course of a week without any trouble. We had our three oldest grands over for a few nights this past week and THEY HAD A BLAST! The oldest is able to stand under and inside the playhouse without any trouble and the two yr old can climb the ladder with ease. Even grandma was up in the "tree house" with the kids! We put a little kitchen in the bottom section and the kids really enjoy cooking and serving downstairs. They absolutely love the windows! We adjusted the swing height for each child. Having 3 swings means no waiting! The only drawback we have encountered so far is that the slide is a bit steep and so it slides FAST. The older grands have mastered the technique of going down it, but the two yr old is still leery. We are very happy with our purchase and expect to have many more grandkids to enjoy it for many more years : )
