This swing was designed by GV to be extra tall, which makes its arc long and high to suit older kids while also safe for younger kids. One of many custom designs, this swing is surrounded by some of the more than 70 trees and thousands of grasses and shrubs in this small new park. Many of these plants are located just outside a play structure’s safety zone. Throw up your legs at the peak of a swing and you’ll nearly touch the tree branches.
