A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sit down in the Hawk Studio with the Toms River "Field of Dreams" founder, Christian Kane to discuss the special needs complex and playground being built on North Bay Avenue in Toms River

The "Field of Dreams" will be MORE than just a "special needs" playground. It will be a complex within the community for children and adults with special needs to enjoy the basic fundamentals of play: an inning or two of baseball paired with a “buddy” on a rubberized baseball field, nine holes of miniature golf on a wheelchair accessible course, adaptive playground equipment on an all-inclusive playground, a game of basketball on a rubberized court with collapsible rims, or a stroll on an art encompassed walking path surrounded by a multi-sensory landscape.

Money is still needed for this amazing project. They are hoping to begin construction this summer, and they can't do it without the help of the community. Please click HERE to make a donation.

This afternoon I met Christian at the future site of where the Field of Dreams is going to be built. I wanted to get a first-hand look.

The Field of Dreams will be an incredible place. Please take a minute to check out this 3D video animation of what the complex will look like upon completion:
