Kids Climbing Play Structure - Part 2

A few years ago I posted complete instructions on how to build your own kids climbing structure. At 6.5ft tall it was collapsible, portable, and featured both a rock wall and a cargo net. You can read the original post here.

However our situation has changed - our kids school has lost its playground while they undergo renovation, and we’ve added two additional kids to our brood, demanding a structure with a bit more flexibility.

To accomplish this, I cannibalized our climbing wall into a larger, more permanent structure. I didn’t keep detailed notes this time around, there was simply too much that went into it to provide the same level of instruction. But I hope these pictures provides some additional inspiration as to what you can transform your climbing wall into with a bit of time and a lot of hard work. Overall the additional structure cost me ~$1200 CDN in materials including the two slides which had to be ordered. The vinyl tent cover was custom made for $40 in material (and the labour to sew it was a gift).
