About Us

Backyard Play Places is dedicated to providing quality zip line and playground equipment for the entire family to enjoy. We are a family owned and operated business located just outside Portland, Oregon.  We are here to help you create the backyard you've dreamed about!

While doing research for our own backyard, we found that there is little information available for the do-it-yourselfer. There are many places to find very simple and basic playground plans, but we had a few more grand ideas in mind. Such as building a play structure with multiple platforms and a rope bridge in between, a tire swing underneath (which has since become a sandbox) and a lookout tower on the top. We also wanted to have a zip line across our property.  That's where the idea for Backyard Play Places came about.

We are happy to feature our exclusive brand, ZLP.  ZLP Manufacturing, LLC are producers of high quality zip line parts and accessories which include trolleys, handle bars, brake blocks, seats and more.  We are proud to say these items are made locally with products made in the USA.  Check them out in our store, were sure you will find their quality is hard to beat!  

Please visit our BLOG, there are many ideas and info about zipline installation and tips for ordering.  Is your playground or zipline amazing?  We would love to see it! Send us your pictures and a description of what you did and we may feature it on or BLOG and website!
