The County Department of Parks and Recreation announced this week that improvements to a Po‘ipū Beach Park project are now complete, according to a County of Kaua‘i press release.

The scope of work included replacing fixtures in the main comfort station and improvements to the pavilions, playground, and showers. Pacific Blue Construction was awarded an approximately $670,000 contract for the project.

“The County of Kaua‘i and the Department of Parks and Recreation would like to thank the public for your patience,” Director of Parks and Recreation Lenny Rapozo said. “This completes the work at Po‘ipū Beach Park that started with the renovation of the west comfort station as part of our efforts to transform our high-user parks into ‘super parks.’”

The Po‘ipū project was part of the department’s “Super Parks” initiative in an effort to upgrade its heavily used park facilities. The initiative began with the refurbishment of the structures at Lydgate Beach Park, and it is part of Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr.’s Holo Holo 2020 vision for Kaua‘i.
