4th of July PicnicJoin us for the 4th of July picnic/potluck on the lake!

Come out to the middle of the lake at 6:00pm on Saturday, July 4 to tie up barges and boats. This allows us to catch the air show that also begins at 6pm. Dinner will start around 6:30pm.

Folks should bring whatever food and drinks they want to eat and share. There is not going to be a food signup list. Afterward, barges and boats will untie and float down the canal to watch the spectacular Kailua fireworks, which are scheduled to begin at 8:00pm. If ELRA members want to join in on the fun and do not have a barge, they can hop aboard a neighbor’s by calling George Lingle at 383-0509.

Don’t miss it! This is a great opportunity to meet your lakeside neighbors and just have fun!

 About Ka‘elepulu Pond (Enchanted Lake) and ELRA

Ka‘elepulu Pond, located in Windward O‘ahu, is also known as Enchanted Lake and includes about 95 acres of water, wetlands and small, low islands. It connects to the ocean at Kailua Beach Park via Ka‘elepulu Canal. Access to the lake is restricted to residents who are members of the Enchanted Lake Residents Association (ELRA).

ELRA is a non-profit organization that holds title to and manages a 79.471 acre portion of Ka‘elepulu Pond, also known as Enchanted Lake. The board of the ELRA has taken a pro-active role in the management of the pond, with the ultimate goal of restoring Kaelepulu to support diverse fisheries resources and recreational activities in clean water..

Lake Conditions

Berm OpeningLake resident Bob Bourke works with the city to coordinate berm openings to maximize benefits to the lake. The siphon project at Kawainui Marsh is bringing in water and the lake level has been good.

Special Member Meeting Held

A Special Membership Meeting was held at Enchanted Lake Elementary School on May 1, 2015.

A quorum of ELRA member families were represented at the meeting, which featured a presentation on the ELRA vs Delta Construction litigation situation and information on the health of the lake ecosystem. Attorney Linda Paul was there to answer residents' questions.

A vote was taken to approve a special assessment of $250 to support the litigation efforts. It was nearly unanimously approved.


Board meetings are usually held on the second Tuesday of the month at the home of a board member. Residents are welcome to attend.
