Playground to close for new equipment

Work to replace equipment at Hui Aloha playground will begin Oct. 2 at Keopuolani Park and continue through Jan. 31, according to an announcement from Maui County.

The project will include the demolition and replacement of the existing play equipment, swings, safety surfacing and cushions.

The entire playground and a portion of the adjacent parking lot will remain closed during construction. For their safety, people should stay out of the work area.
