We are looking for a swingset/play set

that can be assembled and torn down easily; what do you recommend? We don't want to spend more then $300 if possible

  • We just bought a nice wooden swing set on Craigslist for $225. It has a forte, wavy slice and spaces for 4 "swings"... right now we have 2 swings, a trapeze/monkey bar and plan to get a glider for the last spot.

    We had to disassemble and get it to our house and reassemble...the hard part was moving it.

  • neighbors got one, had a dozen adults helping and still not together
    theirs said 2 adults- 10 hours = yeah right!

    those plastic ones go together in less time and effort
    i see them on craigslist used for 250

    i got a wooden one on craigslist, and the guy brought it to my yard and set it up
    but this is not the rule but the exception - delivering and setting up for me
    usually you have to disasbleme and transport and set up again
    but IF you have a way to do this with a flat bed trailer, the set will only have to be taken apart somewhat
    you will need a huge trailer and a few very strong guys

    metal ones are easy to put together too

    good luck, i spent a month on craigslist faithfully looking for the one i got
    could not believe my luck when he said he would deliver and set up for only 40 more bucks
    the thing weighs a ton, and would have taken me months to set up from a start of boxes of the parts

  • I'd go with the metal ones, they aren't overly high priced and easy to take down and put back up.
