Any silica or calcium carbonate sand is likely okay. The finer grades tend to be easier to maintain, IMO.

Before you decide to buy just "regular" playsand (if you, in fact, are looking at it), check out sandblasting sand (what I use). 100# for about $12.00. My first choice would be an aragonite/calcium carbonate based sand, but can't get that around here cheap.
