The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation has reopened the covered play courts and upper baseball fields at Pāhoa District Park.
These areas were reopened on Monday and were preceded by a blessing ceremony.
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. The soccer fields will remain closed until they are repaired and safe for use.
