Simple Playground Ideas

Hopefully I picked the best forum to post this! Please be easy on me; I'm looking for thoughts about a very simple jungle gym I'd like to put in the back yard (picture below). It's basically two 6 x 6 posts with climbing holds on them connected by a 2 x 8 x 12 that the kids can climb across using hanging rope handles.

I'm thinking this would be easy to add to -- for example, if I added a 3rd post I could put another climbing wall or cargo net on it.

I'm looking for critiques and suggestions -- I need it to be fairly cheap and easy but I also want it to be fun.

Thanks!

I think vertical ropes with knots will be an advanced maneuver. Maybe OK if your kids are training for American Ninja Warrior but it might be too difficult for some children.

Hadnít thought of that. Rope loops would be easy to do instead.

Ages are 4-8, so pretty young.
