‘Four Mile’ park closure extended

The closure of James Kealoha Beach Park (“Four Mile”) in the Keaukaha area of Hilo has been extended through Wednesday due to unanticipated delays.

The park was closed last week so its roadway and parking areas could be repaved, according to the county Department of Parks and Recreation.


The park’s one-way traffic pattern will be reestablished upon reopening, coupled with a new system of reverse-angled parking throughout the park.

Reverse-angled parking requires all vehicles to be backed-into marked stalls.

This is being implemented to complement the one-way traffic pattern, enhance the safe maneuvering of vehicles into and out of parking stalls, and for the increased safety of people loading/unloading their parked vehicles, as well as those using the park, according to Parks and Rec.

For more information, please call Parks and Rec at 961-8311.
