Community Class Program


The mission of the Department of Parks and Recreation is, “to  provide safe, satisfying, and cost- effective recreational opportunities for the residents and visitors of Maui County.” One of the primary ways for the County of Maui Department of Parks and Recreation to meet this goal is through the community class program as it provides an affordable recreational opportunity for residents throughout all of the park districts. Private instructors in the community are used to supplement the department’s existing programs to address the recreational needs in this community. Classes such as hula,martial arts, tennis, and water color, are available just to name a few.
