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.

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