The Independence is a full-featured set at a great price! This design has been a best sellers over time. It has an upper play deck with colorful canopy. To get up there the kids can use the standard step ladder or the challenging rock wall ladder. The 8' speedy slide safely zips them back down to the yard. Under the fort there is a snack table that has its own canopy cover plus room for a sand box! Out on the swing beam there are two belt swings plus a two-person glider for hours of swinging fun. The kids will love it!

Swing set

 from Sioux City, IA– Verified Buyer

This is a very nice swing set with enough swings and activity spots for multiple kids. It seems to be pretty sturdy but was missing one board and a couple of bolts when we assembled it. Overall very happy with this purchase.

Nice swing set

 from Strafford, NH– Verified Buyer

Ok, it arrived in good condition, we have yet to assemble it, but looks ok, and should be easy to assemble. The packaging was a little bit torn and damaged, but it doesn't look like the actual wood pieces were affected. Having said that, I was really unhappy with the unbelievably LONG wait time between placing the order and having it delivered. It took two months to get my order, and spent at least one of those months sitting in a warehouse about 50 miles from my house. The reason I am giving it 4 stars, is that the customer service reps I spoke to were very polite, and really seemed to be trying to help me resolve the issue.

Independence Play & Swing Set in Cedar

 from Vallejo, CA– Verified Buyer

This swing set works perfectly in a compact yard. My son-in-law put it together himself over several weekends. He did wish that more holes had been pre-drilled. Once it was together, it was withstood several months of everyday use by 3 to 7 kids at one time. My grandsons love it!!

Great swing set

 from Danvers, MA– Verified Buyer

Quality swing set for the price. Took my Dad, my brother and I just over 8 hours to complete the build. We had a good system going which made things very easy. Highly recommend laying out all the bags of hardware on a table and leaving them in the bags. As my brother and I were putting together different parts of the set, my Dad would pull out all the hardware we would need for the next step and have it ready for us. One organizer and two builders worked great for us. My 3 year old daughter absolutely loves it! Purchased an infant swing to replace one of the toddler swings for my 1 year old girl and it is perfect for her right now. Only part missing was main floor joist for upper deck, but I was happier adding two 2x4 joists on my own. Feels very sturdy and looks great in the backyard!

gift for grandchildren

 from Metairie, LA– Verified Buyer

love, love the swing set. The only complaint I have is that it needs a coat of clear sealer which I didn't know about when I purchased it. Great buy for the money. They love it.
