In an effort to get even more people in and enjoying Maui's public parks and facilities, the Maui County Department of Parks and Recreation has created a survey in hopes of gathering public input as to what is wanted and/or needed to make our parks better.
If you would like to take the survey, go to www.mauicounty.gov/parksurvey. It takes only about 10 to 15 minutes, and will be a big help.
