Maka'eo Walking Path WATCH

CREATING A SAFE COMMUNITY PUBLIC USE SPACE

If you see something, say something.  This is how we have improved safety at Maka'eo Walking Path & Gardens over the past year.  Call the Kona non-emergency police number (808-935-3311) or 911 for emergencies.

Walking your dog is a great way for you and your fur to be healthy and active, but dogs are unfortunately not allowed at Maka'eo. Maka'eo Walking Path is part of Old Airport State Recreation Area and is governed by State Park Laws and Regulations and Hawaii Revised Statutes. Friends For Fitness must abide by these laws and regulations for our organization's management area.  Please contact Parks & Recreation for details.

Together we can make Old A a safe, comfortable, drug free state park for the active community and public recreation!
