Baldwin Beach Park is one of the largest beach parks (55.87 ac.) in the county’s system of parks and recreational facilities and is one of three major parks along Maui’s north shore that attract high levels of use. While the park has been a favorite beach for residents for decades, there are a number of issues to be addressed to ensure it continues to meet both current and future needs. In addition, the County’s Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) recently acquired about 25 acres, which more than doubled the size of the park.
An update to the South Maui Community Park Master Plan is now being prepared for the undeveloped portion of South Maui Community Park between the new South Maui Gymnasium (now under construction) and East Welakahao Rd. A master plan was originally prepared many years ago but because of changes to what was built, the Department of Parks and Recreation believed that the plan should be updated.
