    Default Backyard playground

    I need direction on building what we call monkey bars in my back yard. I need dimensions and design ideas.

    I would recommend a visit to a playground equipment dealer/builder, after that it's sizing it to the kids that will be using it.

    Nobody sells monkey bars indivually. I need ladder dimensions including height.

    That's not the point. The point is to see how the units are made and take measurements from them.

    I would think that 12" on center spacing would be the standard. I would also think that probably a 1" diameter pipe, maybe 1-1/4" would be used. Stay away from galvanized pipe, the zinc coating isn't good to handle in this manner.

    Thanks for the info. I checked the parks near me and they are all gone. If anyone sees one at their park I would appreciate any dimensions from them.
