LIHUE — The Kauai County Housing Agency and the Department of Parks and Recreation announced that rehabilitation work at Kalena Park will begin Monday and run through March 7, on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., weather pending.

During the project’s rehabilitation phase, the basketball court and immediate surrounding grass area will be off limits until the project is complete, and will be marked off with barriers. However, the playground, pavilions and comfort station will be available for use.

Contracted by Jas. W. Glover, Ltd., the scope of the $218,113 project includes resurfacing of the basketball court, replacement of basketball posts, backboards and rims, markings for the basketball court and two pickleball courts.

Funding for the project is provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant program.
