The Department of Parks and Recreation announced Friday that it will be closing Family Fishing at Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden this weekend.
Consistent rain and soggy weather have created slippery conditions on the walk down to the fishing area, making the path to the reservoir unsuitable for public use Saturday and Sunday.
If conditions persist, the cancellation may be extended. Please check DPR social media and website for updates on when the program will resume.
Opened in 1982, Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden and its reservoir were designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide flood protection for Kaneohe. It is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Family Fishing is a free catch-and-release program provided by DPR at Hoomaluhia on Saturdays and Sundays, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
