Lanai Community Center

Lanai Community Center

Kevin H.
Description
Built around 1951-52 in the center of Dole Park, the “old” bowling alley was developed by the community to serve as a recreation facility. Mr. Gregorio Cabuslay collected some 1,000 pledges for half-day and full day wages from plantation employees, raising more than $50,000.00 for construction of the building. While the facility is architecturally out of place in the historic landscape of Lāna‘i City, it is the product of a community partnership, and a site of great importance to the old timers of Lāna‘i. The bowling alley contained four lanes which were reportedly brought over from an old military alley on Maui, and a pool hall and snack shop. Bowling leagues were formed—pin setters manually racked the pins and returned the bowling balls—and great entertainment was had by all at the alley. Several local families, including the Daldes, Tamashiros and Fuchigamis, managed the operation over time, and it finally closed in the late 1970s. The building was turned over to the Maui County Division of Parks & Recreation, which now manages it as a Community Center – hosting such activities as public meetings, wedding receptions and parties. The 8th Street front of the building is also home to the County Council Services Office and Immigration Office. #Apple_Seed #Dole_Park #Lanai_City #LNY
