Who Invented Monkey Bars?

edThe playground apparatus known as the “Monkey Bars” was invented in 1920 by George Skinner. He was a construction engineer who wanted a safe way for his children to play.

With the combination of his engineering and the advice of the playground director, the new structure provided a safe place for children to play and still get all of the fun of a playground. With its sturdy steel ladder, the children were able to swing around and explore new areas of the playground.
