The Department of Parks and Recreation announced the planned closure of Kalama Skate Park in South Maui for emergency repairs from Nov. 5 to 22; and the two-day closure of the Kokua Pool in Central for treatment from Nov. 10 to 20.

The Kalama Skate Park closure is to facilitate repairs to vertical ramps, safety railings and support structures.

County officials say some portions of the skate park will also be painted to cover graffiti.

Questions on the skate park repairs may be directed to the South Maui Parks Office at (808) 879-4364.

The Aquatics Division also announced a two-day closure of Kokua Pool in Kahului to facilitate the chemical treatment, scrubbing and re-balancing of pool water.

Following the closure, the pool will reopen for regular hours, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Thursday, Nov. 21.

Questions regarding the pool closure may be directed to Duke Sevilla at (808) 270-6135.

The department thanked the public for their patience during these repairs to address safety concerns and maintenance issues.

Earlier this month, county officials also announced the temporary closure of Waiheʻe Beach Park for about a month, beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 12, to accommodate restroom and park renovations.

    So this taxpayer-funded free-use facility for the youth of Maui will be closed for more than two weeks, to repair criminal property damages committed by the spawn of incompetent parents. Disgraceful.

    Dont forget about all the necessary maintenance… that happens as a result of all the free use and weather…

    I see the point in the previous comment, painting over graffiti really hits a sore spot, I wish idiots like that were caught and made an example of like the boys who were caught tagging several years ago…
