Free & Public Sandbox Locations in Second Life

Welcome! On this page, you’ll find a list of free, public Second Life sandboxes that offer a minimum of 2 hours auto-return time, low-to-moderate traffic, and appear to be well maintained. New members, please visit my Guide to Unpacking Boxes & Objects in Second Life and my Guide to Using Sandboxes in SL, as well as the general Second Life Tips & Tutorials category!
