The O'Connor playset plan is one of our mid-sized playground blueprints. Designed for kids aged 3-12, this plan comes in both the standard 8✕17 size and the deluxe 26✕29 size.  This playset is perfect for a family of 2 or more and parents with a drive to build something cool!

The O'Connor is modeled to be more in the mainstream, pre-assembled style of backyard playgrounds, with the caveat of being totally DIY with step by step illustrations and instructions.  Made up of two levels and a gable roof, the O'Connor playset plan totals 96 square feet of play space and includes a 12' swing-set, as well as a rock wall and gang plank.  A great backyard project for active children!
