After years of renovation, the Wahiawa District Park Gym is now welcoming residents back.
The park was under improvement projects in the last few years including electrical rewiring, swimming pool renovation, skate park redevelopment, outdoor courts resurfacing and Hale Koa room reroofing.
“Through this dedicated work, Wahiawā District Park has been revitalized and can once again be more fully enjoyed by community members of all ages ̶ and serve as a focal point in our community,” said District 2 Councilmember Heidi Tsuneyoshi in a press release.
“I look forward to seeing the park full of life where many, many wonderful memories will be made for years to come!”
The park gym’s reopening and blessing ceremony was on February 18. The event consisted of Councilmember Tsuneyoshi, Senior Advisor Mike Sakata, Community Liaison Kelly Anaya, Department of Parks and Recreation Director Laura Thielen, Senator Donovan Dela Cruz’s representative David Cho, Representative Amy Perruso, New Hope Wahiawā Pastor Lori Shimabukuro and Native Practitioner Lilette Subedi. Wahiawa Police Station’s Captain Paul Okamoto, Wahiawa Community Policing Team’s Corporal Nicholas Shane Muna and Officer Tim Iinuma were also present.
