PAIA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - H.A. Baldwin Park on Maui remains closed Monday due to flooding from last week's heavy rains, county officials say.

The park has been closed since Friday after continuous rains left the gravel parking lot, restrooms and pavilion areas a muddy mess.

Work crews were able to begin removing the mud and cleaning the park Monday when the weather cleared up.

A date to reopen the park will depend on weather conditions later this week, according to Maui County officials.
