Rock Climb Wall Climbers (back to top) "Nature Inspired" and part of our signature line of Natural Playground accessories options, all Bears rock climb walls are faced with attractive, splinter free composite decking, and framed with real cedar logs. Green rock holds are strategically positioned. Longer walls are designed with hand and foothold patterns that discourage access by the smallest climbers but become progressively easier as the ascent continues towards the top. This builds self confidence. We offer many choices for all abilities. Choices are listed below; click to go to the detail page for each event.

Because our posts are round and our Swing Set is half saddle notched we can mount your swing set on any corner post or center mast desired. We can even install the swing set to a tree in order to free up all 4 sides of the playground for other activities. Not only that, we can also mount the Swing Set at any angle desired (say 45 degrees to the structure instead of the traditional 90 degree right angle, as long as it does not conflict with another play activity). In addition, our wide stance adjustable height A-Frame support scissors together or apart to adjust and level the height of your swing beam.
