Adding lush to Liliuokalani Park

  • Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Elder Watabe digs through mud and gravel Saturday to prepare Liliuokalani Park and Gardens for a suhama rehabilitation on Saturday. A landscaping team from Japan will be in Hilo next week to help create two smooth stone beaches, or suhama, at the park.

Volunteers came together Saturday morning to help clear gravel and mud from coves at Liliuokalani Park and Gardens that will be rehabilitated into suhama.
