Beach had lots of lava that wasn't a deterrent for swimming. We went to Keiki beach and there were lots of kids and young families but not crowded at all.

I walked here nearly every morning during our stay in Kona. The walking path is beautiful with all the flowers and other plants. It is just a pleasant and peaceful place to walk.

Sorry I cannot specifically answer your question. I would suggest you speak with someone in the city/county offices as this is a park.
