Maui has the opportunity to win a $20,000 grant to improve a park as part of “Meet Me at the Park,” a collaboration between the National Recreation and Park Association and The Walt Disney Company to revitalize and restore parks across the country.

The Earth Day event, intended to build support for the West Maui Greenway project, will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Lahaina Civic Center.  Photo Courtesy

The West Maui Greenway Alliance entered Maui County in the earth month competition. If Maui wins, the grant will go towards building and maintaining the 25-mile West Maui Greenway project and requires individuals to nominate Maui online starting April 1.

The greenway project will serve as a safe, family-friendly place for residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors away from the heavy traffic on Honoapi‘ilani Highway.

Learn more about the Greenway Project at the Love the West Maui Greenway Day on April 22. The free event will include live entertainment, food trucks, fitness activities and more.
