You don’t have to be a kid to be awed by the Volcano Slide at Lydgate Park’s Kamalani Playground. Or by the multicolored mosaics—turtle tables and snake seats and tiles shaped into the faces of divers and butterflies and fish. A lot of love went into creating what the Friends of Kamalani and Lydgate Park like to call the “best beach park in the state of Hawaiʻi.” And love is what keeps it looking spectacular.
Join the Friends every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. at Lydgate Park in Wailua (Kauaʻi’s east shore) to help keep this special place in prime condition, such as by grooming the beaches of the popular swimming ponds. (Past Friends projects have included Kamalani Playground, Kamalani Kai Bridge, and Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Sports Park.)
For more information, contact Thomas Noyes, ThomasNoyes@hawaiiantel.net, (808) 639-1018, or visit www.kamalani.org. And if you’re on Kauaʻi for Earth Day, April 17 this year, help the Friends celebrate on their major volunteer day of the year—lunch is included!
Throughout March, we’ll be featuring a variety volunteer projects available on Kauaʻi’s east and north shores—check back here for weekly updates.
