Swings

Swings are a staple piece on any playground, not only for the fun factor but because they play a crucial role in the overall development of a child. Because they require constant, changing motion as well as monitoring of the player’s environment, swings contribute to the development of movement and perceptual skills.

GameTime, North America's largest manufacturer of playground equipment and the renowned leader in play, has leveraged nearly a century of expertise to create an exclusive line of swing options. With modern takes on classic favourites such as the Tire Swing to designing accessible options like the Zero-G Chair  which ensures every child can play together, GameTime has a swing for everyone.
