First Impressions of the Tremont Tower
While this is called a play set, for the most part this is actually a play structure. There are so many features and areas for children to play. They can climb the ladder to enjoy the platform tower with the wooden roof. If your child wants a fort or tree house, this is so much more than that. The structure can accommodate up to 12 kids at a time. Imagine your next birthday party or family reunion. The kids will be entertained for hours on this play structure.
There are two swings available with this tower. One of them is a wave slide that can be attached at any location while the other is an enclosed tube slide. They’ll feel like they’re at the park with expensive structures. There’s a glider, picnic table and climbing rock wall, too. This is a structure that your child will basically live on for the entire summer.
The company was one of the first to make wooden playground equipment available to the homeowner. They call themselves the first DIY wooden playground manufacturer since they’ve been in business since 1985. They bring customers a patented bracket system that makes assembly easy, and the system has won awards for its ingenuity and ease for the customer. You should be able to assemble this structure in one day with the right help.
Construction and Materials
All the pieces of this play structure are made with pre-cut wood that has been coated with a poly material to ensure it can stand up to the abuse of the outdoors and multiple children playing on it year after year.
The slides both come with a lifetime warranty against cracking and breakage. All you have to do is contact the manufacturer for a replacement piece as long as you own the structure. This is a play structure that will last for generations. In fact, one day your children’s children will be visiting your home to play on the structure their parents enjoyed growing up.
Assembly and Tools
Along with the pre-cut lumber and hardware to put this structure together, there’s assembly instructions that are detailed and include illustrations to make the process smoother.
The manufacturer suggests having a drill handy as well as drill bits like a Philips bit. A shovel, screwdriver, adjustable wrench, carpenter square and tape measure are vital to the assembly, too. A socket wrench set will be helpful as well.
When placing this play structure, you need enough room in the backyard so the kids won’t fall into any other structures. There should be a minimum of 30.5 feet by 28.6 feet for safety. The structure itself when assembled is 198” x 166” x 123” but that doesn’t include room for kids to swing, glide or jump around the structure. If you have more room, that would be more ideal.
Details We Adore
We love that there are so many parts to this structure. While it can take some time to assemble, it will be totally worth the hassle when you see the kids playing on the slides, climbing the rock wall, enjoying their new fort, or gliding on the kid’s glider. There’s even a picnic table, so the children can enjoy lunch outdoors or take their homework out there after school on beautiful autumn days.
