All Access Play, INC is a nonprofit that is seeking “Dream Makers” for the “Field of Dreams” project. With more than 30 parks and recreational facilities in Indian River county including a few dog parks, one may be inclined to declare “we don’t need any more parks”. I felt the same way until life events and circumstances opened my eyes and melted my heart. There is not one park or sports recreational facility specifically built for children and young adults with special needs. Shame on me, shame on us. As a community, we inadvertently overlooked the needs of more than 4,000 people who live amongst us. It doesn’t matter how it happened or why it happened, what matters is that we, as a community, fix it. We must stop “doing for some and start doing for all”. Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in league sports and play on a playground no matter the level of abilities The “Field of Dreams” project is needed, deserved and very much possible. We, as a community, need to be more inclusive with recreational facilities and parks. Scientifically, it’s not known why but the number of persons who are special needs seems to be increasing every year. Therefore, we must respond with something we do know and that is action We need to unite and make the “Field of Dreams” project the best gift from our community for our community, for years to come.
