In July of 2019, the Rotary Club says it began working towards their vision of “an oasis of tropical beauty” on the corner of Seaside Avenue and Aloha Drive. The project raised more than $550,000 to beautify the city property without spending taxpayer dollars.

Among the vegetation planted was Pohinahina, Ti plants and Queen Emma spider lilies.
