WEST MAUI – This Earth Month, Maui has the opportunity to be part of “Meet Me at the Park,” a collaboration between the National Recreation and Park Association and The Walt Disney Company to revitalize and restore parks across the country.

“Meet Me at the Park” offers one city the chance to win a $20,000 grant to improve a park. Beginning April 1, 2017, if you are at least 18 years of age, nominate Maui at NRPA.org/ BeInspired, and you will be entered into a drawing to win a tablet outfitted for the outdoors.??

Maui’s parks and programs allow kids and families to get outdoors, be active and have fun while improving the environment, economy and our health.

The grant will support the West Maui Greenway project, a proposed 25-mile, multi-use trail that uses and transforms the abandoned cane haul road along the West Maui Mountains. The greenway will serve as a safe, family-friendly place for residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors away from the heavy traffic on Honoapiilani Highway.

This community resource will connect residents and visitors of all ages with nature to protect the planet for future generations.

You can learn more about the greenway project at the first annual kick-off event, “Love the West Maui Greenway Day,” taking place on April 22, 2017. This free, family-friendly Earth Day event will include live entertainment, food trucks, fitness activities and more. Learn more at westmauigreenway.org/events.
