Richardson Ocean Park closing for ant control (Sept. 11)


The county Department of Parks and Recreation will close Hilo’s Richardson Ocean Park, weather permitting, at 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, so maintenance personnel may apply another round of baiting treatments designed to control little fire ant infestations.

Richardson Ocean Park will reopen at 7 a.m. Friday, Sept. 12.

The Department of Parks and Recreation apologizes for any inconvenience the short closure may cause and requests the public’s patience and understanding while it continues efforts to eliminate little fire ants from Richardson Ocean Park.

For more information, contact Jason Armstrong, Public Information Officer, at 961-8311 or
