Every child needs a fort for imaginative play, and the Backyard Discovery Hawkeye Wood Swing Set gives them both room to scheme and ways to pull off their plans. This formidable fort has everything from an upper club house where kids can hold secret meetings to a sandbox and deck down below where they can draw up their strategies in the sand. A climbing rock wall provides a secret backdoor entrance, topped by a crow’s nest lookout and connected to the main upper clubhouse by a tunnel extension. The side sun porch offers more official entry for club members and the ten-foot-long wavy slide gives everyone a quick retreat when the fort is under siege. Forming clubs is actually a great way for children to learn about cooperation, inclusion, organization, and even governmental procedure. But whether your children are entertaining friends or just playing on it by themselves, one thing is certain: they will love running out to climb, explore, and reinvent this structure to suit their needs. This kind of active outdoor play has a profound effect on childhood development, establishing lifelong habits of healthy natural exercise. And by working out their bodies, kids are also able to better clear their minds, which will allow them to better focus when mental concentration is needed instead.
Parents will love this play structure’s sturdy construction with high-quality materials. Using 100 percent cedar, this play set is naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insect damage. The plastic coated 4 x 4s also provide extra strength in securing the five-foot-high upper deck and the four-foot-high sun porch. And kids will love all the extra features, from the swings and trapeze to the smaller design details, such as the scalloped roof with an attractive awning and sunburst end gables.
About Backyard Discovery
Hoping to encourage a healthier model of living, Backyard Discovery starts with active outdoor play for children. Producing residential play sets that feature hundreds of possible configurations, a wide range of accessories, and truly unique safety features, Backyard Discovery has become a leader in outdoor play structures. Though Backyard Discovery is the product of a merger between Leisure Time Products and Backyard Adventures in 2007, their history and experience stretches way back to 1968, when the original parent company began producing outdoor-grade plastic and metal products for a variety of industries, like agriculture. Backyard Discovery has now chosen to direct its focus toward outdoor family leisure, trying to promote fresh air, friendship, exercise, and imagination. Moving forward, the company has begun to branch out from play sets to include gardening and patio products as well as sheds and dog houses, aiming to create a happy healthy outdoor environment for the whole family.
