Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation says that the restroom facilities at Glenwood Park have been temporarily closed due to theft of the potable water catchment tank cover, damage to the tank, and possible contamination of the system.
“Once the system has been repaired and the water deemed safe, the facilities will re-open at the park,” County officials said of the facilities at the park located off Highway 11 in Puna.
In addition, county officials are asking the public for information about the incident. Anyone who does should contact the Police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
In addition, damage or vandalism at any parks or beaches should be reported to the Department of Parks and Recreation as soon as possible at 961-8311.
