This gallery features a wide variety of backyard playground ideas for kids. Includes playhouses, play forts, slides, swing sets, large playgrounds, small playgrounds and more... all for your backyard.
Welcome to our gallery featuring a wide variety of fantastic children’s backyard playgrounds.
One of my favorite things to do as a child was go to the public playground. When I was really young we had a swing set but no playground like you’ll see below. In lieu of playgrounds, many kids love having a tree house or playhouse.
It didn’t matter if there was anyone else there, I could let my imagination go hog wild on the slides, swings, and other various playground equipment.
The playgrounds I played on as a child are, of course, nothing compared to the size of some of the playgrounds we’ve collected in this gallery.
The above playground is public, with a gorgeous view of the mountains beyond. It’s a truly stunning environment.
From slides to ladders, climbing walls to rope swings, these amazing sets are sure to spark any child’s imagination.
A few of these are luxury, custom-built forts and castles, while others are imagination stations built for a large number of children.
There are also a few fantastic tree houses included, sturdy enough and safe enough for a sleepover!
Regardless of the type, each play set is sure to provide countless hours of fun for any child, and to spark friendships that can last a lifetime.
We hope you’ll enjoy this gallery, and you’ll be inspired to build the play set of your dreams!
