Summer is upon us and it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful Denver weather. Playground swing sets, slides, sandpits and jungle gyms make wonderful memories for both kids and parents alike. Taking your child to the local playground can hold so many memories as a family. However, think of how many memories would be made if you and your children could locate, purchase and install the fun area at your own home. It will undoubtedly hold many memories for many years to come.

When turning your backyard into a childhood haven, the first thing to do is to look at the area you have to work with. It’s important to decide what size of area you have, and how much of your backyard should be used. There are many companies in Denver who can come out, look at your space and talk with you about what you are looking for. Do you want a simple swing set or do you want something more elaborate? Colorado is home to many great options, such as swing sets, forts, jungle gyms and trampolines.

Below are a few local stores that can help you with this fun family-oriented project:
