The Origin of Eastern Jungle Gym

Eastern Jungle Gym


Eastern Jungle Gym was born in 1992 when brothers Mark and Scott established the company with a vision of creating safe, strong, and affordable wooden swing sets. Since then, Eastern Jungle Gym has stood the test of time, thanks to the use of high-quality materials and industry-leading, innovative engineering techniques. What’s that all mean? Well, it means we’re seriously thoughtful about our process.

In fact, in the very beginning, the brothers worked from a modest warehouse in a residential neighborhood in Mahopac, New York, you know, like Steve Jobs–but in Mahopac. Before long, they moved the business into a larger shop in nearby Croton Falls, New York. Not ring a bell? Well, it’s a wonderful town in the Hudson Valley an hour north of New York City. Today–and for the last 30 years–

Yes, you heard us right… we’ve been designing and building swing sets for three decades…

We’ve perfected our models to suit any family, of any size needs. Somewhere in our lifespan of three decades, we moved again right back to where we started, in Carmel, New York–not too far from Mahopac. Back to our roots in other words, and everything has grown better, and more efficient. All of our swing sets are designed and manufactured by a team of professional, longtime employees at our 20,000 square-foot warehouse here in good ol’ New York.

Eastern Jungle Gym swing sets are sold and distributed across the country–and internationally–through a network of dealers, one of which is Best in Backyards, the retail division of Eastern Jungle Gym. With major success driven by Eastern Jungle Gym, Best in Backyards also sells pools, storage sheds, decks, patios, trampolines, basketball systems, pergolas, pavilions, swim spas, hot tubs, and much more out of our six superstores in Connecticut and New York.

The ever-present growing demand for Eastern Jungle Gym’s high-quality swing sets, and our multi-channel expansion program prompted the decision to launch an e-commerce website. Mark, Scott, and the rest of the team are excited to continue “creating childhood memories,” and producing fantastic experiences for customers, for more families than ever before.
