Park closed in lower Puna


The Department of Parks and Recreation closed Ahalanui Park in lower Puna on Thursday after learning of an unconfirmed report that a member of the public allegedly became sick after swimming in the park’s hot pond.

The park will remain closed pending results of tests being conducted by the state Department of Health Clean Water Branch.
