The County of Kaua‘i’s Department of Parks and Recreation, Bow Engineering and Development, Inc. (BEDI), and American Ramp Company (ARC) are seeking public input for a redesign of the Kapa‘a skate park.

“The County of Kaua‘i is partnering with BEDI and ARC to gather ideas from our community for a redesign of our skate park at the Bryan J. Baptiste Sports Complex in Kapa‘a,” said Mayor Derek S.K. Kawakami. “Skateboarding is near and dear to me, and providing improvements to this type of recreation for our community further encourages physical activity and provides an improved skate boarding experience for all users.”
