Why Gorilla?


Gorilla LogoGorilla Playsets™ was founded on the premise that a residential playset should feature high quality wood components, have durable playset accessories, include all necessary hardware, and have clear easy-to-understand instructions – all at an affordable price!

We've been in the playset business since 1993, and our design engineers have many years of combined experience in designing safe, innovative, and sturdy playsets. From inventive product development to superior customer service, Gorilla Playsets is the first name in ready to assemble playsets.

Gorilla Playsets has taken the playset industry to new heights by going beyond the ordinary features and play value found in typical swing sets. At Gorilla Playsets, we listen to our customers’ needs and continually strive to produce playsets that will be safe for your children. We made adjustments and re-structured certain aspects of playsets that needed a modern re-design, and we made them better! We learned from you, and we listened to your children.

At Gorilla Playsets, we know that your outdoor play sets will create fun and lasting memories for you and your family, and we are so happy to be a part of them!
