The state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will close ‘Iao Valley State Park on Tuesday, August 31 and Wednesday, September 1 while it is painting railings along the main walkways and bridge that lead to the garden area, lookout shelter and stream trail.  State officials say the park closure is needed to ensure public safety and allow painted fixtures to dry.

The painting is part of the Division of State Parks’ park beautification and ongoing facilities maintenance.  Maui Painting has been awarded the $11,500 project.

The park will reopen on Thursday, September 2. However remaining sections of the park will also be temporarily blocked off to complete the painting by Friday, Sept. 3. Areas not being painted will remain open to public access.
