Liberty Swing

Using the Liberty Swing

The Liberty Swing is a world-first Australian innovation – a swing that allows children in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the joy of having a swing in the park. It is the only swing of its type that is fully lockable and allows a maximum swing height – that is, really swinging, not just rocking back and forth.

Until now, some children have had to sit and watch from the sidelines as their siblings experience the freedom and exhilaration of a swing – something that most of us have taken for granted.

The Swing is manufactured in Sydney, Australia to the highest Australian and European Standards.

When installed and operated according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, it is a very safe and easy to use piece of equipment; the plastic moulded capsule is fitted with an internal steel frame, making it robust enough to withstand the rigours of an outdoor children’s playground or busy schoolyard.

It’s not just the kids who are swinging! Many Liberty Swings are visited by residents from aged care facilities and enquiries are underway into the therapeutic benefits of “having a swing” for those with dementia.


The Liberty Swing is both therapeutic and fun!
