I have this Fort Davis Jones in my backyard. My daughter loves it. She grew up with it. It has weathered the test of time. She had this from the time she was 10 years old and still while she is in college goes out to set in it when she comes home. It is as sturdy now as when it was first put in. I have just kept up with the suggested staining every other year. It still looks almost brand knew.
It has kept her active and fit in this day and age of the video game. Although she has had every video console and game, she still enjoys the outdoors. There may not be a connection, but some of my friends with children that did not have a Play System and their children only had video games, are having to deal with health issue's of weight and they look so pale.
The neighborhood children and some of my neighbors grandchildren can't wait to come and play on it. It has been the hit of the neighborhood for years. The Jeffcoat' family business Backyard Fun Factory has great service. They built this play system like they were building it for their own family.
