CITY DEDICATES NEWLY UPGRADED KAIONA BEACH PARK

 

            WAIMANALO -- Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hannemann today (Saturday, July 2, 2005) joined  Waimanalo residents and officials of the City Department of Parks and Recreation and Department of Design and Construction in dedicating the new bathhouse and other improvements at Kaiona Beach Park.

 

More than 100 people attended the community-organized dedication ceremony at the park, on Kalanianaole Highway on the Kailua side of Shriner’s Beach.

 

The contractor, Hawaii Water Technology Inc., built the new bathhouse, installed a new septic tank and leach field, showers, walkways, picnic tables, ash disposal facilities, handicapped parking space and security lighting for the parking lot.

 

“I made clean and safe parks a priority of my administration and this is an example of that,” said Mayor Hannemann. “The community asked for these improvements and we are pleased to deliver them.”

 

Parks Director Lester Chang said, “We know how important this project was to the Waimanalo community. We are happy the facility is completed and open and we hope it will be well-used by the community. It’s certainly something all of us are proud of.”

 

The improvement were done under a $1 million contract with Hawaii Water Technology that also included work at Makapuu Beach Park – replacing the roof and upgrading the electrical system of the bathhouse and lifeguard storage building.
