Get Active at the Maka'eo Walking Path
Old Kona Airport State Recreation Area
Open daily from 7am-7pm Winter / 7am-8pm Summer
The Maka'eo Walking Path consists of two paved asphalt loops (0.3 miles and 0.7 miles) that create a 1 mile walking and running path. At the path's main entrance you'll find a small exercise pavilion, the small loop lawn, and the Maka'eo bulletin board showcase. The showcase is updated monthly with health awareness information, path events, and fun facts. The small exercise pavilion offers a stretching post, parallel bars, and pull up bars.
At the north end of the path is the large lawn that hosts weekly physical activities like Karate and Tai Chi lessons. On the south end of the path next to the Kailua Kona Skate Park is a large succulent garden designed and cared for by Kaz Shigizawa, a member of Friends For Fitness. As you make your way around the path you'll find a large achialine pond amongst the pathway's colorful gardens that are cared for by volunteers seeking a physically active lifestyle.
