CedarWorks has always impressed us with their dedication to beautiful and sustainable designs for kids, and now there's even more to love as the company rolls out active playsets that are perfect for space restrictions and all budgets. CedarWorks stylish and eco-friendly playsets come in three different series this summer: the architecturally-inspired Serendipity Series, the new ultra customizable Frolic Series and the budget-friendly, ready-to-go Play-a-Round Series. No matter which series you go with, you can be sure that all of these playsets are made with splinter-free, chemical-free, maintenance-free Northern White Cedar wood. CedarWorks uses the same wood regardless of playset price and this is a feature only available at this company. If you're ready to invest in some outdoor summer fun for your child, keep reading to learn more.
Play-a-Round swing sets come in three different pre-boxed models for you to choose from and each is loaded with fun features. Play-a-Round makes it easier to choose a pre-made playset because each is designed with the time-tested play items and accessories kids like best. Plus, these sets are made to last, using precision turned posts and traditional mortise-and-tenon construction.
The Frolic series is the most versatile offered by CedarWorks because it’s designed to specifically grow with your child and family. Frolic playsets feature oversized structural beams, less plastic, less metal, and a unique modular system that offers tons of custom options for your changing family. You can start off with a large or small playset that’s simple or ultra magical and then change it as you see fit. Visit CedarWorks to see how Frolic can change through the years as your child grows.
The Serendipity series is the most magical outdoor playset series offered at CedarWorks. Serendipity playsets offer craftsmanship with hints of classical architecture and the beautiful aesthetic values you might see with artisan-crafted furniture. Every Serendipity swing set is custom configured for the family who orders it and there are options galore to choose from including rock walls, activity ladders, swings, slides, interior play areas and so much more.
Choosing the right materials, wood especially, is very important when it comes to outdoor playsets. You want safe materials that won’t harm your kids, but because a playset is a major investment for most families, you also need materials that can stand up to weather, time and your active kids. CedarWorks fits the bill. All CedarWorks outdoor swing sets are made exclusively from Northern White Cedar, a wood that offers natural strength, long life, and no splinters without added chemicals. Northern White Cedar is also naturally rot and pest resistant. You can get playsets that are plastic-free as well, depending on the accessories and components you choose. Colored components of CedarWorks products are finished with stains that perform well below state and federal VOC emissions regulations.
