Kapolei Skatepark gets new gnarly obstacles

A construction project to expand the current Kapolei skatepark at Kapolei Regional Park will result in the facility doubling in size while adding some new obstacles for skaters of all skill levels.

The project, outlined in the Kapolei Regional Park Master Plan and designed with consultation from the Hawai‘i Skatepark Association, will add a variety of new skatepark features such as various rails, walls, stairs, and banks.

In addition, the project also includes new LED (light-emitting diode) security lighting.

The project is scheduled to begin next week and is anticipated to be finished by the end of 2020. The entire skatepark is anticipated to be closed during this project.

The $900,000 contract for this expansion project was awarded to Ralph S. Inouye Company, Ltd.

As of this announcement, all of the 13 skateparks operated by the Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) remain closed due to efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. DPR is looking forward to reopening these facilities in the near future.

We appreciate your continued patience and hope everyone stays healthy.
