May 5, 2016) - The Freeholder Board, children and adults with special needs, and community volunteers marked opening day for the Camden County Miracle League on Saturday. More than 100 players and family members gathered to kick-off this annual spring rite of passage at Boundless Field, which opened in 2013 to accommodate handicap accessible baseball games and Special Olympics events.
“Children in wheelchairs, kids who use walkers or kids who never would be able to round the bases on a regular baseball diamond are afforded the opportunity to participate in an organized sporting event like their peers,” Freeholder Deputy Director Ed McDonnell said. “As elected officials our goal is to improve the quality of life in Camden County, and this extraordinary place does just that for a special group of athletes.”
Boundless Field is located at the Camden County Park System’s award-winning and fully accessible Challenge Grove Park. This treasure of the Camden County Park System is also home to Jake’s Place Playground for children with physical limitations. Jake’s Place Playground is the region’s first boundless playground, which was designed to be enjoyed by everyone regardless of physical ability.
