Help Us Finish Our Fund Drive

We are so close…but we need your help to make it to the end. With the community’s amazing support, we have come so close…but we need your help to cross the finish line. We want to have money in our fund to pay for the remaining build and for maintenance. There are still playground components you can sponsor, or you can become one of our medal donors.

 

We Are Relaunching Our Brick Sales

We have more brick pavers, so if you missed out earlier, you can now get in on the action. You can dedicate the pavers to your loved ones, or your company can show their support to our community. To sponsor, click here.

Our Mission
Our Mission
Tatum Bakker, for whom the playground is named, is a Salinas native and has Spina Bifida. Her parents, Shawn and Amanda Bakker, are the visionaries behind this effort to bring a fully inclusive and accessible playground to our community.

Tatum’s Garden is a community-wide volunteer effort to build the first fully-inclusive and accessible playground in Salinas…a place where all children can come together, interact, be included and grow, through the gift of play.

Tatum’s Garden will bring a one-of-a-kind, shoulder-to-shoulder play experience to the children of Monterey County, and their families, regardless of ability.

Salinas Circle, a 501c3 nonprofit, has been serving the special needs community in Monterey County for over 40 years.

Tatum’s Garden will be designed by the community, donated by the community, and built by the community…as a gift for our children to enjoy for many years to come.
