Playground equipment may include a support structure

Another further aspect is commercial playground equipment that may include a support structure, and the support structure may include a platform and a plurality of supports sized and configured to position the platform above the ground. The supports may include two or more generally vertical supports and/or two or more generally angled supports. The generally angled supports are preferably positioned at an offset angle relative to the generally vertical supports. For example, the generally angled supports may be positioned about 10 degrees, 15 degrees, 20 degrees, 25 degrees, 30 degrees or more offset from the generally vertical supports. The supports preferably include a pair of generally vertical supports and a pair of angled supports, and the pair of angled supports may be interconnected form an upside down V-shaped configuration. Desirably, the pair of angled supports may form a part of a swing set.

Yet another aspect is outdoor playground equipment that may include a swing. The swing may include a seat and one or more tethers, such as chains, ropes, cables or the like, attached to the seat. In greater detail, the swing may have one chain, rope, cable or the like attached at the center of the seat, or it may have three chains, ropes or cables attached at three different portions of the seat. The indoor playground equipment may also include a support structure, and the chains, ropes, cables or the like may be attached to the support structure, which may allow the seat to hang from the support structure. The chains, ropes, cables or the like are preferably attached to a plurality of generally fixed locations on the support structure and/or the seat. In particular, the chains, ropes, cables or the like are preferably attached to plurality of spaced apart portions of the seat and/or to a plurality of spaced apart portions of the support structure. Attaching the chains, ropes, cables or the like to a plurality of spaced apart portions of the seat and/or support structure may more effectively limit the movement of the seat to a desired range of motion, which may advantageously help prevent the seat from inadvertently contacting other portions of the playground equipment manufacturer . The spaced apart portions of the support structure may be spaced apart, for example, at least about 6 inches, 12 inches, 18 inches or 24 inches apart from each other; and the spaced apart portions of the seat may be spaced apart, for example, at least about 6 inches, 12 inches, 18 inches or 24 inches apart from each other.
