Imagine a place the community can gather for everyday family outings and celebrations, first birthday luaus, picnics, community meetings and more. The new Kilauea Community Agriculture Center Farmer’s Market Pavilion will offer a free of charge public gathering place, surrounded by the beautiful bounty of agricultural lands. The one-acre Rotary Park, complete with a Gazebo, will entice locals to stop by and enjoy the ambiance of a well-tended food forest and agricultural fields.
The Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay is committed to raising funds for the Farmers Market Pavilion, North Shore Food Pantry and a one-acre Rotary Park. The Rotary Park is a one-acre community park, complete with a gazebo and landscaping. Rotarians work at the park every Saturday, planting, weeding and being stewards of this small portion of the Kilauea Community Agricultural Center.
The KCAC gazebo was funded in 2017 and constructed in 2018. See the article describing the dedication.
