Product Overview

The Grand Valley Retreat Play Set is the perfect addition to any backyard! With so many exciting activities your children will be busy climbing, swinging, sliding and playing outdoors all summer long!

Complete with premium windows, wooden roof, two crow's nest lookouts, a play telescope to gaze into space, and a steering wheel to captain a ship, the upper clubhouse will keep your children active and busy! From here watch as they escape the upper clubhouse by cruising down the exciting twist n' ride tube slide and cruise down to the lower clubhouse or over to the solid rockwall and access ladder for another turn. The café window with bench in the lower clubhouse is the perfect place to hold team meetings, break for a snack, or set up a puppet show. On top of this, the Grand Valley Retreat has 2 belt swings and an acro bar with an extra wide A-frame that can adjust for uneven yards.

Watch as your child's imagination grows in a playful environment within the safety of their very own Big Backyard. At Big Backyard we are dedicated to producing high quality, safe, and easy to assemble products for our customers. Using 100% Premium Cedar Lumber, the skills and dedication of the team who create these premium Play Sets are bolstered by a commitment to providing innovative designs and features.
