Backyard Adventures closes in Amarillo

An Amarillo business whose handiwork you may have in your backyard will close.

Backyard Adventures Incorporated says the economic environment and the play set industry's competitive landscape motivated its decision.

Kansas will now house the manufacturing operation of the company.

Backyard Adventure's vice president says some of the company's 75 Amarillo employees can relocate.

The company originated in Amarillo and has remained in business here for 20 years.
