Idea - walls wide enough for seats for sandbox
Classy sandbox to turn into a planter when they're older
I like to play in sand
it's totally visible and accessible from the street, so neighborhood kids wander over and use it all the time
Raised sandbox - can turn into planter later.
This sandbox is great...not only is it deep enough for digging, it is also less desirable for a neighborhood cat.

Can you please supply details for building this sandbox. Absolutely in love with it. Thank you.
Seems unpractical in a real world of kids?
Thanks @Casill. Actually this is in the real world and used heavily by a family with three kids under the age of 10. Does it get messy? Absolutely! But thats what brooms are for :)
danygrl10, This Sandbox is poured in place concrete 4" thick about 18" deep with no bottom. We added plenty of drainage
available at box stores like Home Depot or as "Playground" sand at supply yards. I would suggest incorporating a cover and using hardy plants around your sandbox.
the hidden sandbox...would need a cover though
Something that my kids would love.
For the kids...reminds me of when I was a kid too

Alan & Linda Detrick Photography Irregular bluestone walkway. Natural boulders used to create sandbox - can easily be transformed into a rock garden when the children are grown.
Walkway and side dig area for the kids.

Great way to contain a sand box. As the kids get older, you could turn this into a planting bed later with trees, shrubs, flowers.
The concrete base of a massive 5,000-gallon water tank was reused to create this sandbox. Dye added a special area with stones and running water to inspire sandcastle building.

Does the sandbox have a cover?
I thought of something like this in the past with a potential cover of sandbox for more use and when kids get older.
cool play area for kids, easy to keep neat and clean
Shaded area to watch kids play.
for kids sand box, build it into the deck
A family with kids may want to incorporate less seating but plenty of shade — and even a sandbox — to make the most of their private outdoor getaway.More: 20 Sublime Outdoor Havens

for the kids to play in sand :-)
the wall behind the sand box is nice and you can sit on it and watch the kids play which would be a double bonus.
don't like the sandbox but love
entertainment and sensory play for your children.
This open-air playhouse with a gable roof and a sand floor is a treat for younger kids who love building structures with pails and buckets or simply feel tickled by the sand between their toes. The shade ensures that everyone can play for an extra hour or
out of the sand and provide a spot for parents to perch as well, and the roof shelters kids from too much sun.
Provide sun protectionAlways ensure there is shade in summer for sandpits, paddling pools and other play areas. Site them under a tree or use a shade sail, awning or sun umbrella.

Built in sandbox for grand kids
wood detail and sandbox idea for the kids
Cute idea. I could see my future husband and I sitting, chatting, and watching the children play in the sand :)
2. A sandpit that’s part of the actionPlace a sand play area too far away from the house and it will likely become a neglected part of the garden that not even your kids will feel drawn to. This backyard pergola provides a place for grown-ups to gather for a chat, as well as a shady spot for little ones

An Urban backyard designed for a first-time homeowner and their new family. Recycled tiles and a child-proof water feature create a playful space with lots of life in it.
What kind of sand is in the sand box? My play sand is too dusty.
Just do this for sand play....
J: I don't love all of this – just the separation of the play space from the entertaining space.
Like the sandbox, tiled area for kids and how the space

spaces. “Small spaces need that cohesion,” says Arthur, who designed this 17-foot by 25-foot space for a family with small children. A separate play zone keeps the kids close by while the parents are entertaining, and the continuous paving ties it all together. Radford goes even further, suggesting using the
