|Lydgate State Park
Lydgate has much to offer the visitor. Fine picnic grounds, an excellent swimming area for the keiki (children), and a wonderful stretch of beach for sunning or a stroll. There is also a great playground built by volunteers from the community. The coconut grove here once served as a place of refuge for the ancient Hawaiians. Those who could reach the boundaries of the refuge before being caught were spared punishment or even death for breaking a kapu (law). The Wailua River begins near the north end of the park.
