New Turf

In the summer of 2016, the Aloha Stadium had to replace its UBU Speed Series S5M Sports Turf. The installers had less than eight weeks to tear out the previous turf, inspect the ground beneath, then lay the drain pads, turf panels, and the sand and rubber in-fill. The job was completed in time for the fall 2016 high school and college football season. Today's photo shows a shot from turf blades level as players from the University of Hawai‘i Rainbow Warriors arrive to hold their pre-season Fall Scrimmage.

Kawainui Canal

The Kawainui Canal cuts through part of Kailua. Homes and businesses line the edges of the canal that begins from the Kawainui Marsh and Stream, and flows out to Kailua Bay. People have been known to ride dinghies or stand-up paddle board up and down the canal. The view above looks toward the beginning of the canal, and the Ko‘olau Mountains further in the distance.
