HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The IUCN World Conservation Congress continues through Saturday at the Hawaii Convention Center, but some restrictions remain in place.

The City and County of Honolulu said some areas at Ala Moana Regional Park remain closed, including the McCoy Pavilion, the “keyhole” parking area, tennis courts and Honolulu Lawn Bowls Green.

Meanwhile, the parking lot at Ala Wai Community Park, as well as the recreation center that had been blocked off for the event, have been reopened.

The World Conservation Congress, which started Sept. 1, is held once every four years, bringing together thousands of leaders from around the world – including President Barack Obama – with the goal of addressing conservation and environmental challenges and solutions.
