Sand is provided as a courtesy during winter weather. Pick up free sand at participating community leagues throughout the City to use on your icy sidewalks and walkways. Remember to bring your own container when you visit your local community sandbox.
Although every attempt is made to keep sand boxes filled, crews fill them as time permits. Activities such as plowing, blading and sanding roads take priority over additional courtesy services like filling sandboxes.
Keep Your Sidewalks Safe
