Wow. You guys did a good job. Of all the places and parks I have seen on Kaua’i, what is the most requested hang out for families or tourist in Waimea? And they said let’s go to Lucy Wright park to have our lunch. And I see families there every time. Cleaning things up. That is a good thing. Remember who brings in the income. Then you’ll see why they chose to clean this park up. Go gettem….
If you actually read the sign it says nothing about “overnight campers”. It just states “persons in campground during closure are in violation”. So, the people sitting having lunch are in violation? I’m think the wording on the sign must be misstated?
Compared to the cost of providing rental housing for all those people for all that time this was extremely cheap! It was not a bad idea for a way to handle homelessness.
Is there some other bit of land that could be set aside for homeless camping, so they don’t have to camp illegally elsewhere?
Close those parks for a few months to give it a rest for a while after all of the abuse it has received over the months
That rest stop rest room was the most disgusting place on Kaua’i. It was an embarrassment to stop there with visitors before heading up the canyon. Short of bulldozing it down I don’t think there is enough bleach on the island to make that bathroom any better.
