KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) - Improvements are planned for the Waimea District Regional Park with $4 million released by Gov. David Ige.

West Hawaii Today (https://is.gd/CeDA15) reports the money is coming from general obligation bond funds appropriated by Hawaii lawmakers. Matching funds are being provided by Hawaii County.

The funds will be used to implement phase 1 of the master-planned 50-acre park that will feature recreational activities including soccer, baseball and football. Also planned are a community gymnasium, multipurpose building and a trail system.

The first phase is intended to cover 24 acres. The second phase would add 26 acres and convert the area into a regional park.
