At a recent event for the Oneʻula Beach Park Community Care Project, Ewa residents and community advocates had the opportunity to give comments about improvements they would like to see at Oneʻula Beach Park.

Restrooms, paved parking and roads, lighting, a bike path and sidewalks are among a list of things that need to be done at Oneʻula Beach Park.

“They (residents) just want more gathering places where people can sit with their families and have picnics.” said District 1ʻs Councilwoman Kymberly Pine.

Councilwoman Pine  reminisced about the condition of the park ten years ago being fillled abandoned cars and old refrigerators. “Its time we as a community start making the park an essential focus of pride.”, Councilmember Pine said.

This fiscal year, city officials have allotted $1 million to the capital improvements budget for the beach park. It received $150,00 in 2014-2015 and $80,000 in 2012-2013.

The City has started work immediately to fix Oneʻula’s restrooms, after being closed for more then 10 years.
