How much sand for a 60' round pen?

It depends on how deep you want your footing, etc.

Otherwise it is basic math.

Pi x radius squared = the area, to get volume multiply times depth.

60' diameter round pen = 2827.43sqft.

Lets say you want it 3", 3" = .25ft so the volume would be 706.86ft3.

1 cubic foot = .037 cubic yards

706.86 cubic feet = 26 cubic yards.
