Update from county Parks & Rec

MEDIA RELEASE

The county Department of Parks and Recreation has announced the installation of new children’s playground equipment at both Waiakea-Uka and Gilbert Carvalho parks in Hilo.

Construction work started Jan. 21, at Waiakea-Uka Park located at 1200 Ainaola Drive.

Beginning Feb. 20, work will shift to Gilbert Carvalho Park located at 850 Waianuenue Avenue.

Both parks will remain open for public use during the construction phase.

However, the parks’ existing playgrounds will be removed and therefore unavailable for use. To protect the public, work areas will be fenced in. Park users are advised to be aware of construction activities and equipment at both sites.
