PART OF ULEHAWA BEACH PARK TO CLOSE FOR MAINTENANCE

 

(Wed., February 17, 2010) --- The Department of Parks and Recreation announced today that maintenance and repair work will be conducted in a section of Ulehawa Beach Park during the last two weeks of March. 

 

            The Ulehawa Beach section, from the drainage channel to the area of 87- 1386 Farrington Highway, will be closed Sunday night, March 14 at 10:00 p.m. through Thursday, March 25, at 3:00 p.m.

 

            “We are firmly committed to ensuring our public parks are clean and safe so that everyone can enjoy them,” said City Managing Director Kirk Caldwell.

 

Repair and maintenance work will include:

  • Update and repaint comfort station;
  • Repair and painting of picnic tables and park benches;
  • Comprehensive landscape maintenance, inspection and pruning of trees where necessary;
  • Repair of irrigation systems and other infrastructure.

 

This is Phase 2 of the Ulehawa Beach improvements which began last fall with Phase 1 from Lualualei Depot Road to the drainage channel.  

 

After Phase 2 has been completed, the entire Ulehawa Beach Park will be closed nightly from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.  Late-night park closure is in response to numerous requests from community members.  This action was supported by the Nanakuli/Maili Neighborhood Board and the Board of Parks and Recreation.
