Kealakekua Bay State Park pavilion reopens



The state says restrooms and a pavilion at Napoopoo in Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park on the Big Island have reopened following renovations and repairs. 

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says the facilities have new toilet fixtures and security gates. The state has also repainted some areas and repaired BBQ grills. The Hawaii Tourism Authority paid the $42,000 bill for the work. 

The facilities reopened Thursday.

The scenic bay is where British explorer Capt. James Cook was killed in 1779. It has recently become popular with tourists, including kayakers, boaters and snorkelers.
