 We have one but we have dirt around it. It has been up for a few years and none of the kids have gotten hurt. I had no idea the work swingsets are though. We have to tighten the bolts every other week and also we nachored it doen in the ground wiht concrete blocks and covered evryhtign up with dirt.

we jsut took it down bc it was getting rickety. they got a trampoline to replace it. don't waste your money on the wooden ones - they deteriorate jsut as fast as the steel ones and cost 4 times as much lol. we dind't put anything down - just the grass.

 That looks so fun! We have just a regular swingset with slide. I hope when we buy our first home to get something like what you have.

 Sadly we don't. I want to get one but I want to put a fence up first because I KNOW the neighborhood kids will play on it. I've caught them on our trampoline a lot. I hate that but we do plan on getting one plus I want to get a sandbox too.
