In Arlington, Virginia a former fountain was recently converted into the largest sandbox in Arlington County! We recently spent a fun (and free) morning there with some friends.
Please note that there’s not a lot of shade so bring water, hats, and sunscreen! Also when we arrived there were no toys in the sandbox so I was glad our friend brought some sandbox toys for us to use.
If you’d like to find this sandbox, it’s located in Gateway Park, closest to the intersection of Lee Highway and N. Nash Street.
