(Waiʻanae Update): Improvements at Waiʻanae District Park and Māʻili Beach Park are completed, and the facilities are now open to the public!

After much community feedback, the City Council approved $581,000 in capital improvement project funding to renovate the Waiʻanae District Park Shinyei Nakamine Gymnasium Complex gym and comfort station, which is heavily used by residents and members of the Waianae Boxing Club. The second floor of the gym is NOW OPEN following a renovation project to repair the leaking roof and replace water-damaged facilities. The project included: reroofing, repairing water damage to the second floor, replacing the gym’s power roof ventilators, and upgrading repaired light fixtures to LED.

Additionally, the Council also approved close to $500,000 to improve Māʻili Beach Park. Improvements to the park comfort stations are now complete. The most recent project involved repairs to comfort stations 4 and 5, located on the north end of the beach park. This included: replacing plumbing fixtures, piping and sewer lines, flooring upgrades, exterior sidewalk replacement, replacing damaged wood beams and decking, improving the comfort station lighting, painting, new signs, and installation of security screens and gates.
