Construction work will start Tuesday, January 21, at Waiākea-Uka Park located at 1200 ‘Āinaola Drive. Beginning Thursday, February 20, work will shift to Gilbert Carvalho Park located at 850 Waiānuenue 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.

The Department of Parks and Recreation thanks park users and the general public for their cooperation, patience and understanding as we provide for enhanced recreational experiences for our keiki.
