Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lizz Sturdy and nice looking swing set
I have been looking for a swing set for my two boys for a few weeks. The boys wanted monkey bars which are somewhat hard to find. The swing set was delivered very quickly. I hired two men to put it together and it took about a day and a half. The boys absolutely love it! It is sturdy, nice looking, and they love the monkey bars. I was a little concerned about missing parts when I read the other reviews, but we had all of the parts! I would definitely recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sfpie123 Fantastic Play Set!
We bought this set after researching a lot of different ones. We wanted one similar to our previous one, specifically with monkey bars 3 swing options, a slide, and a loft area. We decided on this one with a little hesitation because of reviews regarding split wood and incomplete sets. When it came we were very satisfied. All pieces were accounted for and the material was very sturdy. I would recommend laying all the pieces out in order so you know what you have when you need it. Assembly took a couple days because of rain, but could be done in one day with someone who's good with power tools. In order to avoid splitting the wood, I countersunk all of the screws. It took a bit more time, but it was worth it because I only had one piece split, and it wasn't bad. The only instructions in the manual that were not correct were the green tarp piece. You need to evenly spread it between the two sides because if you pull one side down where it instructs, it doesn't leave you enough tarp for the other side. All in all though, fantastic purchase, very sturdy, and the kids love it (7 and 4).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mainemomma good set- may not come complete in box
Play set feels sturdy. Came without some required bolts so had to spend a couple hours driving around to hardware stores to find them. Give yourself LOTS of time to put it together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momof2greatkids This was easier than expected to complete. Took the better part of a day, with a husband that has above average carpentry skills and my assistance. The directions were VERY easy to understand and diagrams were VERY accurate. Kids could see the progress after less than an hour and couldn't wait to climb all over it. This unit is VERY sturdy and can hold both my husband and myself without any worries. We look forward to being able to enjoy this unit until we outgrow it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John very disappointed
Unfortunately, the wood that was provided for this swing set is extremely low quality. When I pulled them out of the box, many boards were already warped and several split during construction. Also, they do not seem to be strong enough to support the load of children swinging and climbing. It has been together for one week and it squeaks and groans whenever my 30lb daughter swings on it. I would tighten the bolts but they just tear right through the wood. The finish is coming off in at least 5 places, and the over all design of the monkey bars makes them very shaky. Also, the swings must be mounted so close together that any side to side motion whatsoever causes collisions. $1000.00 is a huge sum of money for my family so we were quite disappointed by the overall quality of this play set. I do not see it lasting through more than one or two winters. My brother-in-law bought his swing set from Costco, paid far less, and it is of much higher quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaqui Fun for the girls
I purchased this playset for my best friend's twin girls. We were nervous that the set would be too small for them but it is PERFECT! The girls are 10 years old and moved into a brand new house almost 3 years ago. All the landscaping was finished last year, decks were built, trees were planted and everything had come together. We realized that the only thing missing was a playset. The playset took about a day and a half to put together. There is a level of difficulty but if you stick to the directions it's not terrible. The playset looks great and the girls just LOVE IT! They were so happy when it was finished and they've been enjoying it ever since. I'd also like to mention that Home Depot was fantastic with customer service. When I recieved my shipping information I didn't recognize the delivery company. I used their online chat service and was taken care of professionally and quickly. I was not only given a link to the delivery company but they tracked it for me while we were online. I didn't have to do anything. I'm so pleased with my purchase. HUGE thank you to Home Depot for making this process so easy and affordable!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandyDad Nice Playground Set
The playground is pretty easy to assemble. Just need to be prepared to spend your weekend(s) putting it together. I assembled it with the assistance of my Father-in-law. Only drawback is: 1) the boards do not come pre-drilled, so this prolongs the assembly process and 2) a couple of installation HW pieces were missing. I called the manufacturer customer service and they shipped the missing parts within 48hrs. So "A" rating for "Swing in a Slide" customer service. The playground is very sturdy and my 4 year old loves it. I can add an infant seat to the swing section and my newborn will soon be sble to be swing.
