2. Sportspower Mountain View Metal Swing Set

Ages: 3 and up

Second among this year’s best backyard play sets is the Sportspower Mountain View Metal Swing Set.

This favorite of mine would make a unique, awesome backyard fun zone for your kiddos and their friends. There are five activities for youngsters to choose from, like the jump-and-swing trampoline, two swings, a short slide, the saucer, and glider. I love how funky and energizing the green/blue colors are.

3. Swing-N-Slide Chesapeake Wood Complete Play Set

Ages: 3 and up

One of my personal favorites among 2016’s best backyard playgrounds is the Swing-N-Slide Chesapeake.

Rock walls are the best for a kid with an adventurous spirit. This playground comes with a miniature climbing wall—much safer than cliffs, so no worries, Mom. Wink! There are also two swings, a treehouse, a trapeze and ring combo set, and a small picnic area for between-playtime snacks.
