The City of Edmonton is reinstating the Community Sandboxes program. Approximately 150 sandboxes that were previously part of the program will be returned to their former spots by February 11, and they will be filled with sand and ready for use by residents during the following week.
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.
See https://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/on_your_streets/public-sand.aspx for more information about the program and sandbox locations.
