Kuulolono Park Road
Editor Gardkn Island:
Willi pained amazement I read
in your recent number of the deci
sion of the Hoard of Supervisois,
not to macadamize the road lead
ing to Knkuiolono Park, owing to
a petition before that honorable
body. I also read your editorial
on the subject and heartily com
mend the stand you have taken.
As a citizen and a taxpayer, and
a lover of beauty, mid in the name
of fair play, may I be allowed the
indulgence of a few words in your
columns on this subject?
Knkuiolono Park is the private
property of Walter McBrvde, pur
chased some nine years ago at
public auction from the govern
ment. It is situated a few vards
from the government road at Ka
laheo, its "public entrance" (so
called) being less than a mile from
the Homestead store.
It was originally a bald, wind
-swept, barren hill, affording graz
ing to a few head of battle. One
of the conditions of the purchase
was the planting of trees, which
growin; up formed a good wind
break, in the shelter of which, in
the beginning, a few ornamental
shrubs and flowers were planted.
This formed the nucleus of a park
which growing slowly but surelv,
now rivals in attraction, or as
many say supersedes, the Moana
lua park of Mr. Damon on the out
skirts of Honolulu. Anv one who
motors thru its winding avenues,
gazes at the vista spread before
him from "Restawhile.' home
steads in the foreground, the green
cane fields of the McBrvde Planta
tion just bevond, Makaweli's mill,
fertile fields and Kekaha to the
riht. and Koloa and Ilaupu to
the left, and the deep blue Pa
cific straight before him with Nii
hau in the far distance, can not
but teel a thrill of gratitude to the
public spirited gentleman who
has made these roads, and built the
little Japanese tea house called
"Restawhile." Here one may
spend an hour or a dav and not be
weary. Everything is provided
chairs, table tea, set, even to freth
cut flowers every day of the week.
From lieru one motors thru orna
mental grounds laid out in a varie
ty of effects, to the flower gardens,
tea gardens and ferneries. Here
and there cozy corners and rustic
seats ii vite the wavfarer to re
main and rest.
And if they do not speak loud
enough of themselves, thete is
printed in good plain Knglish,
"walk in," as there is also a sign
on the gate which reads, "Kukui
olono Park, leave gate open till
you come out."
This is the work ot one man,
and out of his own private purse,
the roads, the gardens, the rest
houses, the water supply that has
made these things possible every
thing but the v:ew and that is out
side the park. And then he threw
it open to the public, at any sea
son, at any time, day or night,
and only expostulated when van
dais ran automobiles over the
spacious lawns after a rain and
cut them up. Was there a funeral
phone Walter McBryde for flow
ers a wedding, who else could
supply the decorations? Come and
Everv Sunday a constant stream
of autos goes to this park as it is
h;.lf wav from Waimea to Lihue
ea-iilv accessible to all, and mak
ing a delightful break in an across
the island trip, or a pleasant end
to an afurnoons drive.
Furthermore it has been boosted
as one of Kauai's attractions to
the prospective tourist and is in
all respects, except private owner
ship, a public institution, avail
aMj to all without money and
without pi ice.
Ami if as often if not usually,
the Barking Sands do not bark, or
the Spouting Horn does not spout,
Knkuiolono is alwavs on the job.
Cognizant of these facts, a mem
ber of the Board of Supei visors to
the great surprise of Mr. McBryde,
at the March meeting, proposed to
lay alight coat of macamam, 10ft.
wide only as far as the gate, real
izing it would be a great benefit
to the public and not thinking to
stir up anv side road controversy.
For this is one road that is truly
of value to the whole island, as e.
people even come all the way
from Hanalei t o picnic there.
The road would cost less than
$2,000,00. In addition this road
serves the needs of a large number
of homesteaders who have no other
way of reaching the main road in
good or bad weather with their
produce. Furthermore it is the
artery of travel for some 500 labor
ers in the different camps of the
McBryde Plantation makai. These
two sets of people are greatly in
need of this road, and I question
very much if Mr. McBryde did
not err greatly in regard to the
people of his district when in his
honest indignation, at the recent
petition, he asked the other Super
visors to rescind the ordinance that
had been passed appropriating the
money. .The road was not for
him he goes in at another gate
anyway but was primarily in
tended as a benefit to the whole
island of Kauai, only incidentally
helping ou: those who daily used
I do not think that Mr. McBryde
should have taken this attitude
but should have opposed this peti
tition in his usual broad-minded
way for the sake of the whole is
land. It is understood that this
petition was instigated and pushed
by parties in the Waimea district,
who wish the belt road completed
to the Barking Smds, ostensibly
for tourist traffic. This would
only cost $40,000,00 on the present
grade which would be washed out
or covered with mud at the first
freshet. A road further mauka
would cost much more, over twice
as much. This can not le done
possibly for a couple of years, but
his little rond to Knkuiolono could
be done at once and the County
not one whit the poorer. It is
maintained by those in a position
to know, that the propoition of
travel to Knkuiolono Park and
that to the Barking Sands is as
thirty to one and to macadamize
that road first, at acostof $40,000,
00 at least, for a few tourists,
when so much pleasure can be giv
en to its side of the Island, as
well as Waimea and the interme
diate districts, seems to a disin
terested, no I menu an interested
observer, to be farsical in the ex
In conclusion, I wish to say
that I believe the belt road should
be finished, in the main, before
the side roads. They benefit the
whole island, both for business
and pleasure so does this. I do
not think the Mana extension can
be considered a part of the belt
road but is in itself a side road
Those side roads which do not
constantly benefit the whole island
traffic should not be touched till
after the completion of the belt
road but this one is in a different
category, so let us have it.
