Kukuiolono Park dedicated, 1911.

KUKUIOLONO PARK IS DEDICATED TO PUBLIC

Flag Pole Exercises Mark the Dedication Of Beautiful Park to The Public By Walter D. McBryde.

RACE TRACK IS INCLUDED

A Gift Which Will be long Appreciated by All True Lovers of the Various Kinds of Sport.

The Kukuiolono Park, which was recently dedicated to the public by Walter McBryde, with flag raising ceremonies is a gift which carries more significance than can be realized by a passing thought. It means much as an everlasting stimulous to athletic sports of every discription and is further indication of the thoughtfulness of the donor laboring class, has become a second nature.

The park is situated makai the government road, perhaps a mile, but a splendid approach has been provided over which an auto glides up the glade, with perfect ease. A graded race track 30 ft. wide encircles the park, while the inside is arranged for baseball, football and any other desirable sports. The location of the park may probably lead to a centralization of all sporting events from Makaweli to Koloa, as it is situated at Homestead, a sort of half-way place between the above places.

Mele for Kauai and Kukuiolono Park by Mrs. Wahineikeouli Pa, 1917

HOOHENO NO KA POLI LAUAE.

Nani wale no Kukuiolono,
Ke kikowaena o Kauai;
Paka hooheno a ka lehulehu,
A ka ili ulaula ili keokeo.
laila makou ike iho ai,
Na pua like ole oi a ka nani;
Hoohihi ka manao a e lalau,
…..I bo-ke pua kau umauma.
Aole nae hoi la a e hihi,
Na huaolelo kau e ka weli;
…..Mai kii aku oe mai hoopa,
Ua kapu ia na Alekana;
Aole i ana iho e ka makemake,
Na pua momi o Keaunaulu.
Ulumahiehie i ka Uanoe,
I ka ua lihau noe i ke kula;
Laula ke kahua i haulani ia,
Ekolu puni o ka lina poepoe.
Ua lawa ka iini koialoko,
…..Ua ike ia Kukuiolono;
Kau aku ka manao no Waimea,
E ike i ka wai Ulailiahi.
Ka hoa pili hoi o ka Waikea,
Na wai kaulana o Manokalani.
Aia i ka la’i a o Waiawa,
Ka mu-o launiu opiopio,
He hoa hooheno no Limaloa,
No ka eueu a o Ainaike;
Ike i ke one kani a o Nohili,
Kohu waiolina ke hone mai.
Ua like a like me ke kauno’a,
…..Nonoula i ka Wailiula.
E ola no au me a’u lei,
A kau i ka hae o ka lanakila;
Haina ka puana a i lonoia,
O a’u lei o ka Poli Lauae.

Hakuia e Mrs. Wahineikeaouli Pa.

[I wonder if there is a picture of the sign that stood at Kukuiolono Park which is referred to in this mele? “You fancy to take, A boutonniere of flowers for your breast, But don’t be mistaken, The sign that instills fear; Do not take nor touch, For they are kapu to Alexander McBryde (Alekana).

This mele is printed earlier in the Kuokoa of 12/7/1917, p. 3.]
