Is skateboard park in Lahaina safe?

We're coming to visit and my 14-year old is a skateboarder and wants to spend a lot of time at the skate park. Wondering about several things:

1. Are the skaters respectful of each other, allowing each other to take turns, etc.

2. Is the park in a safe part of town? Could I drop him off there and come back and hour or 2 later?

3. Is it free open skate for anyone, or is it manned by staff and is there admission?

4. When is spring break for the locals? Wondering how crowded it might be the weeks of 4/3 and 4/10.

Anything else that would be good to be aware of? Thank you!

It's free, and open during daylight hours, every day--or was, last I knew.

Spring break is over here, but adults skate there too. I'd be hesitant to leave him alone there, at least until he's gone a time or two and gotten the "lay of the land". It isn't manned in any way.

I don't know about Lahaina, but the Kihei skatepark seems at times to be a pothead hangout. I agree with Akamai Nicks advice

The park is ok, but I would stick around for 30 minutes or so to be sure it was ok that day.

Only 14? I'd sit in the car with a book.

What? A skate park that's a pothead hang-out? That's odd. Hehe. Good advice though. Stay with him the first time maybe.

Re: the pothead comments- my DH and, I hope, posters son aren't pot heads. That's a negative stereotype. :)

But I still wouldn't leave my kid at a public place.

The Kihei one is the pothead one.
