    Default Looking for a wooden playground for backyard, recommendations please!

    As the title suggests, we are looking for a playground type thing for our kids for christmas (rather than buying toys we're thinking this would be a good investment). Kind of like the ones in Bunnings.... any help on where to look/recommendations would be fab!

    Thankyou in advance

    I did a quick drawing of it and dp's dad did a to scale one lol Its pretty simple though I think.
    We picked a playground quality slide up very cheap considering they are like in their thousands but you can get a smaller one from bunnings for couple hundred.
    We are doing a net wall, picked up 30 meter rope for $20 at the markets and will spend hours knotting it (just like the one we did for the birds but bigger lol) Bought packets of rock wall climbers from bunnings, for the rock wall. So we will have three sides (going to be detachable so we can change things around later). I will be doing a little kitchen set up to go under and will be doing like bonoculars and thing to play with on top.

    I want to also do a fireman pole, monkey bars and chain wall at a later date. DP thinks he will put it all together in one day....Yeah Im not that confident lol I dont have a picture though sorry

    Yeah a swing attachment will probably be one for the future as well. I hate not being able to change things haha So because it will be pretty big and i wont be able to move it around the back yard, we made a compromise so I can at least change the sides haha
