Pi‘ihonua Gym in Hilo closing for renovations Monday (March 17)


The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation will be closing Pi‘ihonua Gymnasium starting Monday, March 17, so it can renovate the popular Hilo facility located within Gilbert Carvalho Park.

Pi‘ihonua Gymnasium is expected to be reopened at the end of May.

County personnel will repair the gym’s floor, apply a fresh coating of protective wax, install new baskets and backboards, and add more interior lighting.

The Carvalho Park baseball field, parking lots and pavilion will remain available for public use while construction is occurring. However, the park’s playground is being replaced with new keiki equipment, so that area is currently closed to protect the public.

For more information, please contact Chris Drayer, recreation director assigned to Gilbert Carvalho Park, by calling 961-8737.
