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 the 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 DPP Extension Signed

Many ELRA members will recall Board members visiting them at home or contacting them by email and phone to get their approval to extend the DPP. The Board is pleased to report that the DPP Documents were signed by the Kamehameha School Trustees on December 13, 2016. ELRA officers signed on December 22, 2016 and the next day the documents were recorded.
