As a child, I've always found water towers to be fascinating. A giant tank hoisted a mile in the air, just to hold the local town's bathtub fluid? What a strange and bizarre concept. But as a child, you just rolled with it. Now you can take that same alien like structure and shrink it down to backyard play-set proportions.
The Water Tower play-set plan has a compact, dimensional base of just 5' x 6'. Towering over 14' high, it still gets the job done in terms of standing out. Designed for a 5' high slide and comes with instructions to construct a ship ladder. Download a copy of this plan and start building this weekend!
