Playground Sand

White, soft play sand for sandboxes and other play areas

A close-up view of our snow white play sand. This soft sand is mined in Pennsylvania, then washed and extensively screened. It’s the softest, whitest sand around!

Kids love our playground sand. So do zebras!


Our snow white play sand is fine, pure, and soft. That’s because it’s “washed sand” — surface mined, screened, and washed by machine to remove silt and clay, then allowed to drain. It’s finely graded and commercial standard, appropriate for sandboxes in schools, parks, daycares, and even homes. (Washed sand can also be used for fill, to top-dress golf course greens, and as a base for laying brick.) We sell it to hundreds of commercial customers for their sandboxes and play areas.


We ship our snow white play sand anywhere in the continental U.S. The sand is shipped in 50-lb. bags labelled “Play Sand.” The price is $8.99 per bag, with a minimum order of 60 bags. 60 bags equals 1.5 tons of weight. These orders are shipped on pallets, via motor freight. For shipping rates, please phone us toll free.

For orders of fewer than 60 bags (1.5 tons), please phone us toll free for pricing information.
