A state-of-the-art recreation complex especially for special-needs individuals is opening in Toms River. Tour the Field of Dreams in a virtual program, 7 PM Thursday, May 12, as part of the Ocean County Library’s 2022 Autism Resources Fair.

The complex includes an all-inclusive, wheelchair-accessible playground; baseball field; mini-golf course; basketball, bocce and shuffleboard courts; rehabilitative fitness stations; temperature-controlled pavilion; complementary snack shack; and much more.
