WAHIAWA FRESHWATER STATE RECREATION AREA REOPENS
FOLLOWING INSTALLATION OF ACCESSIBILITY RENOVATIONS

WAHIAWA, O‘AHU – The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of State Parks tomorrow will reopen the Wahiawa Freshwater State Recreation Area, on Walker Avenue, following completion of repaved, restriped, and other improvements of roadway and parking areas in the park made for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.  The restroom renovation is nearly complete but portable toilets are available for the time being.

This is the last planned closure for this improvement project. The planned reopening on July 25, was delayed due to Tropical Storm Darby.  Additional time was needed to allow the new asphalt paving and asphalt sealcoat to cure.
