Swing-n-Slide Creekside No-Cut Swing Set
Good mid-size swing, but great number of flimsy pieces

The lumber provided with the set was very mediocre. Sealing is highly recommended as the wood comes raw. Many panels had holes and splits. We had to fill the holes with a filler, seal all of the wood pieces and the sealing process itself took over 2 days. For the supporting lumber, we bought redwood 4x4s. Total lumber cost was $150. Sealer was $36. We painted and sealed ourselves but had someone put it together as there were quite a number of little pieces and we got tired. Metal brackets are nice and sturdy. The 4x4s provide good strength as opposed to other swing sets that comes with 4x2s. Pirate ladder is nice. Swings have rubber coating on the chains which offers good protection against fingers getting caught in the chains. The slide comes in two pieces and can get pretty hot in the sun. The swing that is on the end cannot take a big kid without creaking, as the top beam doesn't have vertical support on that end.
Very nice set. Not all that hard to put together

The over all quality is very good. Some of the wood looks like it would rot pretty quickly, specially the trim pieces, so we spent some time and money water proofing all the wood. The instructions rate a solid 3, but could use some improvement. I was able to assemble 95% of this by myself and only needed help from my wife a couple of times. Assembly was also great quality time with my 12 and 8 year olds who were able to help in many ways. If I have a complaint it is that you can't seem to be able to buy the 4x4 and 4x2 connectors piece meal. There is an addition I would like to DIY.

I purchased this playset for my 3 year old grandson. It is a great playset and is very well made. I was able to purchase it on sale for 717 plus 70 for the wood. I paid someone 150 to put it together and it took him about 15 hrs to set up. I am extremely pleased with the quality and its appearance. My grandson loves it. I would highly recommend this playset!
Great playset - lots of fun

This is a terrific playset - lots of fun and doesn't take up too much space in the yard.
Make sure to beef it up

Swing Beam needs to recommend a 4x6x10 rather that a 4x4x8
