We *love* our playground. I am not as diligent about taking my kids to the park as I should be so this has been wonderful. We bought it from our friends and I am afraid that most of the payment went toward their time helping us put it together ~ very kind of them! We have wanted one for years (and now my oldest two are a bit too big for it, sad!), but I was a little worried about it being an eyesore. Once we got it up, it seems to meld into the surroundings nicely. The kids are out there all the time (which keeps them from doing other things, like homework, whew!). Notice we already have the requisite ruts signifying plentiful swinging time.
