Kaua‘i FitLot at the Prince Albert Park in Princeville, described as the first phase of the Kaua‘i Kupuna Park, is a 42-foot circular platform featuring low-impact equipment designed for kupuna. Funding for the FitLot came with the approval of a $180,000 AARP Grant submitted by the Rotary Club of Hanalei and the Princeville at Hanalei Community Association.
AARP announced in 2018, that it would fund a FitLot outdoor exercise system in every state over three years. The Kaua‘i FitLot, when installed over the next few weeks, will mark Hawai‘i as the last of the 50 states to get the exercise system and be placed in the most-rural of any location.
The second phase of this project is said to include making the area compliant with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, with concrete sidewalks. Additionally, the Rotary Club plans to construct a 900-square-foot pavilion that is three times the size of the existing pavilion, as well as improve the existing bathroom facilities.
