DLNR News Release-Four West Hawai’i State Parks To Close Early On July 4, July 1, 2019

Posted on Jul 3, 2019 in Latest Department News

(Kona)- The DLNR Division of State Parks will conduct early closures of several West Hawai’i parks on the Fourth of July holiday.

Kekaha Kai State Park, including the Mahaiula and Maniniowali (Kua Bay) sections; Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, including the Waialea Bay section; Lapakahi State Park; and Kiholo State Park Reserve will all close at 5 p.m. on Thursday July 4, 2019.

Normal park hours will resume on Friday July 5, 2019.

The closure of these facilities early is to discourage use of fireworks, which is prohibited in state parks, and to protect the public and natural resources of the areas.
