Back in January, a compromise was made after the group “Save our Sherwoods” submitted a resolution to the city council to turn the space into a cultural and historical park.

Initially, the city wanted it to be a sports complex but scrapped that after heavy protest.

Native Hawaiian trees will be planted at the 4 acre site which will include a new irrigation system.
