    We were much, much less likely to go to Uplands when they got rid of the sand pit. My kids loved that sand! I never saw any announcement that they were going to do that.

      Yeah, we stopped going there for the same reason. Loved the sand pit, and I know it was a pain for the lifeguards to make sure people cleaned off the sand before they went back into the pool. But where the sprayers were, it wasn’t easy to get the sand off since you still had to walk in sand to get out. We have been going to Dogwood all summer now instead.

        I am probably the lone dissenter here. The spray alone is so much better and it’s less likely to be pooped in by animals.

          I didn’t like the concrete splash thing as much – was hard on my feet and was worried someone was going to slam their head on the concrete when they fell running around. Plus there is already a spray feature at Hunters Woods. Most of the animals wouldn’t get into the pool area anyway to have contaminated the sand…

    Greatest thing about Reston is the pools!! Feel like I really get my $$ worth and enjoy the guards and how they learn “customer service”.
