Wooden Climbing Frames For Small Gardens

There are so many exciting garden climbing to choose from, its easy to get carried away by picking the biggest most expensive design possible. Even if price was not an issue, space is. We understand that choosing the right climbing frame for you garden depends as much on the size, shape and layout as it does the look and cost.

Many modern homes these days have a small square garden, which lends its self perfectly to a more compact design. Other, more awkward shapes may require some further thought, but don’t worry. Our play experts are on hand to offer friendly impartial advice to make sure your choice is the right one.

Arundel Climbing Frames

Arundel climbing frames are typically smaller than other models and accommodate a lot more play features in a limited space. Arundel towers are 1.2m high, rather than 1.5m high platforms found on some larger models. Our examples below show single play towers but thanks to their flexible layout, additional towers and connectors can be added at any time. It is also possible to add your choice of swing arm, monkey bars or commando net if you have enough room.

Perfect for smaller gardens and younger children who love creative play.

If that wasn't enough, there is also a wooden sandpit beneath the tower platform which is another great space saving idea.
