The beach in Waimea, Hawaii, is getting some new life.
The city has signed a $1 million contract with the island nation of Kauai for a new recreational area, the Waimeakua Beach Conservancy announced Wednesday.
The project will be the first in the island’s history to include a large swimming pool.
The park will feature a sandy beach, a picnic area, a swimming pool and an amphitheater, which will also host concerts and other entertainment.
The new area, called Kauai Island, is slated to open in 2019.
It will feature eight swimming pools, three hot tubs, an outdoor amphitheatre and the Waikiki Waterfront Park, which is slated for opening in 2018.
While the water quality is currently good, the project is still in the planning stages.
The conservancy plans to open the park in late 2019.
Construction will begin on the new park in the summer of 2019.
In the meantime, the beach will remain closed.
