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 $275,000 for the Farmers Market Pavilion and a one-acre Rotary Park. The pavilion is comprised of two covered gathering spaces very similar to the Hanalei Bay Pier. The Rotary Park is a one-acre community park, complete with a gazebo and landscaping. See article
The gazebo was funded in 2017 and constructed in 2018. See article describing the dedication
