Utilising sand as your playgrounds softfall surface may be an old fashioned solution but a study suggests that an old-fashioned solution may be best.  The site for building a sand surface requires it to be free draining so loamy soils or a gentle slope are ideal as the sand will need to drain properly otherwise it can become saturated and stagnates. If the area is of a clay soil type or there is no slop a sand box might be a better option.
