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.

  1. No race track by 1917 but there is a golf course that is still there. Walter McBryde founded one of the pineapple companies and help set up the homesteads in Kalaheo, Lawai and Omao for farmers to grow pineapples and rice.
