Pana’ewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens One-Day Closure

by Thunda

The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation announces the temporary closure of the Pana‘ewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens on Friday, October 14, for a school-based educational event. The event will host a large number of 3rd and 4th grade students from local area schools, and will provide them with a day filled with motivational speakers, educational presentations, music, and lunch provided by the Akaka Falls Lions Club.  

The Zoo will resume normal operations on Saturday, October 15, with gates open to the public at 10:00 a.m.  Also, on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Friends of the Pana‘ewa Zoo will hold their annual Plant Sale fundraiser at the Pana‘ewa Equestrian Center.      

The department apologizes for any inconveniences caused as we provide our school children with a safe and valuable experience at our Pana‘ewa Rainforest Zoo and Gardens.     

For more information, please call Parks and Recreation at 961-8311.​
