Swing Sets (Beam Choices)

Because our posts are round and our Swing Set is half saddle notched we can mount your swing set on any corner post or center mast desired. We can even install the swing set to a tree in order to free up all 4 sides of the playground for other activities. Not only that, we can also mount the Swing Set at any angle desired (say 45 degrees to the structure instead of the traditional 90 degree right angle, as long as it does not conflict with another play activity). In addition, our wide stance adjustable height A-Frame support scissors together or apart to adjust and level the height of your swing beam. These custom advantages are unique to Bears Playground designs and can lead to some very creative layouts.
