The covered play courts and upper baseball fields at Pāhoa District Park will reopen on Monday, Nov. 19, 2018, the Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation announced.

The public is invited to a blessing ceremony scheduled for 3 p.m. on Monday at the covered play courts.

Once the blessing ceremony is completed, the covered play courts and upper baseball fields will be open for recreational use.

Repairs are being made to the entire facility, which sustained damage while being used as a temporary evacuation center during the 2018 eruption of the East Rift Zone.

Repairs are expected to take approximately 13 months, and parts of the park will be closed intermittently while these repairs are being made.
