HONOLULU (AP) - The Ewa community on Oahu will soon be getting a new park that spans nearly 19 acres and is complete with athletic fields.

The park is over ten years in the making. It will have basketball and volleyball courts and a baseball field.

The improvements were a gift to the city from developer Haseko totaling more than $5 million.

The new park comes at a critical time because the James Campbell High School athletic field will close for repairs this month.

Councilwoman Kymberly Pine who represents the area says the park will impact the community for years to come.

A dedication ceremony will be held Monday at 10:30 a.m. at the corner of Keoneula Boulevard and Ft. Weaver Road.
