DLNR NEWS RELEASE: Wahiawa Freshwater State Recreation Area to close for installation of accessibility renovations

Posted on Jul 13, 2016 in Latest News

WAHIAWA, OAHU – The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of State Parks will completely close the Wahiawa Freshwater State Recreation Area, on Walker Avenue, starting Monday, July 18, 2016.  The closure is necessary to ensure public safety while the roadway and parking areas in the park entry are repaved, restriped, and other improvements made for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  The park entry gate will remain closed during this period, and the boat ramp will also be closed.

This is the last planned closure for this improvement project. The park will reopen on Monday, July 25, 2016, unless weather conditions or other unforeseen factors delay the completion.

“We appreciate everyone’s understanding for the inconveniences that will occur during this period, as we need this closure to expedite park improvements,” said Curt Cottrell, State Parks administrator.
