‘Field of Dreams’: Inclusive recreational complex opens in Toms River
A new one-of-a-kind inclusive complex for people with special needs opened Saturday in Toms River.
The RWJ Barnabas Health Field of Dreams is designed to be more accessible for wheelchairs and adaptive equipment.
The project was developed after Mary Kane’s 11-year-old son Gavin Kane suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident.
Kane says her wish is for her family to be seen for the abilities and not their disabilities.
“I wish for my special needs family to feel a place of utter joy and no judgement,” says Kane.
Gavin threw out the ceremonial first pitch for former MLB All-Star and Toms River native Todd Frazier.
