It’s Official… Pahoa Skate Park Closed Half the Time

A few weeks ago I mentioned that the County had official Skate Park rules and regulations that were punishable by law.

Yesterday I took my son to play at the new playground there and noticed from a distance that there was a sign on the fence that I hadn’t seen before.


Not my son skating!

When I got close enough to see what it said… it said this:


Now if you ask me… these hours are pretty bogus!  That means you can only legally use the place half the day.  I know for a fact that many people were and have been using it later then 7 pm.

Why would we prevent a place like this from being accessed at least until 10 pm?
