            City workers have completed a steady stream of improvements at parks and related facilities, and will soon launch additional projects.


            At Foster Botanical Gardens, workers enlarged a classroom and installed new flooring, windows, glass doors and drywall, and topped off the job with a new coat of paint. The work was completed by painters, masons and building maintenance workers from the Department of Parks and Recreation.


            Additional recent projects include new roofs installed on two comfort stations at the far point of Aina Moana (Magic Island). The Waimea Bay Beach Park comfort station also has a new roof, new partitions and new paint.


Comfort stations have also been upgraded at Manana Neighborhood Park Swimming Pool and Moanalua Swimming Pool.


Mayor Mufi Hannemann thanked the workers involved for going the extra mile to bring new life to older facilities.


“These employees work very hard to provide the public with better facilities at a low cost, and their workmanship is superb,” Mayor Hannemann said.


City parks director Lester Chang announced that upcoming projects this month will include replacing the roof of the Old Stadium Park comfort station and pavilion, and upgrades to comfort stations at Waialua District Park Swimming Pool. Among the park projects next month will be comfort station improvements at DeCorte Neighborhood Park in Kalihi.


“Our parks employees are proud of these types of projects that the public can really appreciate and enjoy,” Chang said. “They are dedicated to providing safe, clean, well-maintained and inviting parks for everyone to enjoy."
