Contractor Nan Inc. has been hired to build the project’s first phase, which will involve developing 24 acres of diversified indoor and outdoor recreational facilities at a cost of $23.9 million. Engineering firm Akinaka and Associates Ltd. led the team that expedited design work.

Key features will include a facility with three indoor, multisport courts; a lighted, multiuse sports field complete with spectator seating; a keiki playground; accessible walkways; more than 150 paved parking spaces; landscaping; and various infrastructure needed to support the new park.

It is expected to be completed and open to the public in December 2016.
