KAPAA — Kauai Builders, Ltd. began improving the football field at Kapaa New Town Park on Monday.
The improvements are expected to be completed by the end of February.
“We are excited to get this project underway and give the community a new and improved football field that they have so eagerly awaited,” said Lenny Rapozo, parks and recreation director. “This brings us one step closer to creating a sports complex that was originally envisioned for this park.”
The contractor was awarded $249,302 to complete clearing and grubbing, grading, furnishing and installation of grass, removal of four columns and footings and installation of two new goal posts.
In recent years, the county has made a number of improvements to the Kapaa New Town Park, including installation of new bleachers and field lighting, construction of a new announcer’s booth and locker room and Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades, such as sidewalks and seating.
“The community has been instrumental in providing support and guidance throughout this development effort,” said Kauai County mayor Bernard Carvalho, Jr. “Our parks are gathering places for our families. This project is just one of many that will continue to develop and improve our county park facilities for all to enjoy.”
