Looking for a way to provide some much-needed shade for your playground equipment or picnic area? We've got you covered, literally. This is the classic, best-selling shade structure on the market. Heavy duty, budget friendly, and long-lasting, this shade does it all.

The rectangle hip roof is constructed and secured with 4 posts and is perfect for the standard park, playground, or picnic area. The highly durable HDPE fabric can block up to 96% of harmful UV rays, depending upon the color you choose.

This product is for the shade only, no other park equipment from the pictures are included. For hip roof options at other heights click here.

We offer a wide variety of color options for your posts and shade fabrics, so you can generally match your school or local favorite color scheme!

WillyGoat offers installation across the lower 48 United States! Depending upon the area where you are installing this shade, you will choose between in-ground, surface, or recessed plate mounting option. Inground is the most common option, and surface mount and recessed plate options require anchor bolts and plates at an additional cost. Be warned, these steel shade structures will last you a long time, so pouring footers and setting in concrete can be a sizable but important job. Request a quote today and let us help you get started!

Sealed and unsealed drawings of the shade are also available, just select the option below when adding to a cart or quote. Please read more about footing, installation, and drawings in the installation tab below.

For all projects that require permits and/or sealed engineered drawings, the customer must provide their local building codes for the manufacturer's review.

All shade structures, custom or standard sizes, are made to order and cannot be returned at this time. The standard shade fabrics are not compliant with the California DSA requirements. For more information about shade structures, please check out our Resource Center and FAQ page.

Do you experience snowy or windy weather in your area frequently? Do you need to easily and quickly remove your fabric due to weather in your area? Most shades come with a quick-release option that allows for simple removal of the shade fabric. If it's available for this shade, you'll find it below.

This product is for the shade only, no other park equipment from the pictures are included.

Warranty can be viewed here.

Our shade fabric is Rachel-knitted (with a lockstitch in two directions) for strength, and the panels are sewn together using a GORE® TENARA® expanded PTFE thread, giving the fabric its strength and long-term durability. Our fabrics carry a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty from the date of installation against failure from significant fading, deterioration, breakdown, mildew, outdoor heat, cold, or discoloration; this excludes Red and Coolbrella fabrics, which carry a 3-year limited warranty. The life expectancy of our HDPE fabrics is up to 12 years, assuming they are properly maintained.

  • Once the item has shipped, you will receive a tracking number and important instructions for unloading
  • Ship dates are a best estimate and not guaranteed
  • Shipments can take up to 10 days in transit
  • Products that are ordered from the same manufacturer will ship according to the longest lead time for those products. If a quick ship product is required to ship sooner, please let us know, though you may be required to pay extra for separate shipments.

We Offer Installation!

We are excited to offer installation services across most of the contiguous United States. In order to obtain a quote, please email, call, or simply add the product of your choice to a quote, fill out a little information and be sure to check the box to request installation pricing.

For installation, we require the site be level and free of debris and underlying issues that would make digging difficult.  Each customer takes responsibility for their own, site prep, permitting, and mulch/surfacing unless otherwise arranged. Site preparation information for surfacing installation available here.

Can I Install This?

The short answer is yes, but be careful. We have had many customers install shades themselves with the right talent and equipment. It may not go as smoothly as it does for our professional installation crews, but it can be done as a budget-conscious solution for daycares, churches and apartment complexes!

Please take note that installing a shade structure is a construction project. There will be quite a bit of digging and work to level and set your shade structure. Most people don't realize how involved putting together a large commercial grade structure can be.

Permitting and Drawings

We offer unsealed and sealed drawings for our shade structures. Your need for drawings generally depends upon the audience. For permitting purposes, most institutions required drawings that have been signed and "sealed" by an engineer. Unsealed drawings are more relevant for installation may be required for your installer (standard sizes sold on our site are not generally required for our network of installers)

We do not take responsibility for permitting -- you should consult your local authorities or construction professionals as needed.

For all projects that require permits and/or sealed engineered drawings, the customer must provide their local building codes for the manufacturer's review.
