About Our Complete Outdoor Craze

Jessica Mark's Backyard Creations Hi, I’m Jessica Mark, and I know how hard it is to find a great selection of high quality items for your small or big backyard.  Therefore I’m designing this site in mind to create the largest and most in-depth selection of outdoor family leisure products.  Whether it’s a toddler in need of a water table for some water fun or teens looking for a convertible pool and tennis table we have it all.

Creating the Perfect Play Area For Kids

As a mother of four amazing kids I know how important it is to get them to have fun in the wonderful outdoors!  A lot of experience from my reviews has been with hands on experience trying some of the products (or my kids trying some of the products).  Therefore I hope to give some valuable insight to these products.  We also read the reviews of several other people before giving advice with pros and cons of a product.  We hope that you feel some joy when reading our blogs.   I added a helpful freebie below for the summer.

Frequently Asked Parks and Pandas Questions

 1.  If I have a question or concern about a product who do I contact?

Answer:  Please visit the product page of where it came from and use the contact on that page.  Occasionally we can answer a question about a backyard product.  If you want to try and see if we have an answer you can contact

3.  What are the best backyard toys for older kids?

Answer:  It depends on how old they are. For middle aged kids (4-11) the popular toys are water slides, pool toys, pools, swing sets, trampolines and tree swings.  Older kids (tweens and teens) like the pool, trampolines, pool tables, ping pong tables, and play various yard games (which we will have a great guide up soon on this).  When they get older they tend to want to stay inside more and play video games or watch TV so it’s important to try and get them excited about getting outside.
