Tatum's Garden Foundation


The Tatum’s Garden Foundation exists to cultivate accessible, inclusive play.

The Big Idea

Tatum’s Garden Foundation cultivates accessible, inclusive play with playgrounds for children with disabilities to play openly with others. Their parks also allow parents and grandparents who are disabled to play alongside their children and grandchildren. The organization is working on Tatum’s Treehouse in Carmel Valley, a new park adjacent to the community pool in Carmel Valley, where there is currently a smaller park footprint that is not inclusively constructed. They are also in discussion with the city of Marina about building a new inclusive playground there.

Seeing my son's smile when he gets to play with other children his age makes me feel proud that our community was able to come together and create this beautiful park.
