    Pawaʻa In-Ha Park.


Pawaʻa In-Ha Park in Kaheka is scheduled for a seven-week closure, starting Friday, to address several maintenance projects within the park, city parks officials said.

The 1.68-acre park on South King Street between Keeaumoku and Kaheka streets, is normally closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., and is a place where homeless congregate. City crews have previously conducted cleanup operations around the sidewalks at In-Ha Park.

The city Department of Parks and Recreation said the closure will allow its maintenance crews to repair the irrigation system, remove graffiti, do some power washing and fertilize and aerate the park turf. In addition, crews will repair tables and benches and trim trees.

The park is scheduled to reopen on Friday, Aug. 31.
