Serendipity swing sets, like all CedarWorks outdoor swing sets, are made exclusively from Northern White Cedar. This is the only wood species that meets our discriminating requirements for strength, long life, and no splinters without added chemicals.
According to the National Forest Service, Northern White Cedar is classified as "highly decay resistant" and will last up to 20 years untreated. This is longer than any other natural wood species used in swing sets. For more information, visit our Cedar in CedarWorks page.
No. Northern White Cedar is the only wood used in swing sets that is naturally splinter free. For more information, visit our Cedar in CedarWorks page.
Northern White Cedar is the only wood used in swing sets that is long lasting and splinter-free without chemical treatments, paints or stains. All other wood species used in swing sets (including redwood, cypress, other species of cedar, and inexpensive pseudo-cedars imported from China) require some form of chemical treatment to increase longevity, prevent splinters, and/or color match various species used in the same swing set. Northern White Cedar on the other hand not only protects your children from unnecessary chemical exposure, it also saves you time and money in the long term. Because we don't have to stain our swing sets to prevent splinters or to make different wood species look the same, you don't have to either. For more information, visit our Cedar in CedarWorks page.

The average Serendipity swing set should take approximately one full day to assemble with two adults using common household tools. Major components such as fences, platforms, roof panels, ramps, climbing walls and the like arrive pre-assembled to expedite assembly. In addition, CedarWorks provides detailed installation instructions which, if reviewed in advance, can significantly reduce assembly time.
