Kalama Skate Park Closed for Repairs

KIHEI (KHNL) -- The skate park at Kalama Park will be temporarily closed for two weeks starting November 6 for ramp repairs.

Repairs will address damage to the "Skatelite" surface, and metal flashing at ramp joints.

"The two-week closure will allow us to make necessary repairs to maintain the facility's safety for the skateboarders who utilize the park," said Parks Director Tamara Horcajo.

To ensure the closure period is kept to a minimum, members from two South Maui parks crews will team up to conduct the repairs and build a temporary scaffolding that will provide access to damaged areas.
