4. Gorilla Playsets Outing III Wooden Playground System

Ages: 3-11

The Gorilla Playsets Outing III also manages a place at #4 among the ten best wooden swing and play sets for 2016.

I love this wooden swing set because it would be the perfect place for stargazing.

Some of my fondest childhood memories include watching shooting stars with my dad, nestled in our treehouse with sleeping bags.

Kids can do the same here, but this treehouse includes a neat-o telescope for observation.

5. Swing-N-Slide Grandview Twist Wood Complete Play Set

Ages: 3 and up

My favorite pick for 2016 – Swing-N-Slide Grandview Twist comes in at #5 among the top wood playsets for this year.

Talk about huge!

This swing set comes with two slides—one is open and curvy, while the other loops in an enclosed swirl.

I remember these types of slides from restaurant playgrounds when I was a kid.

The only thing that would make this set better is a ball pit.

9. Gorilla Playsets Nantucket Swing Set

Ages: 3-11

And – in 9th place on the list – Gorilla Playsets Nantucket.

Warranties, warranties, everywhere. This playground is protected against damage, both weather caused and otherwise. The lumber is cedar in a redwood hue, handcrafted for sturdiness, reliability, and damage resistance. Playground equipment includes the usual swings, climbing rock wall, curvy slide, and treehouse. The favorite for me is the tic-tac-toe game.
