hoa_paka_leeward_logo_1We love our Leeward Coast parks! Hoa Pāka, the City’s Adopt-a-Park program is a way that you can show how much you care and make a difference. By adopting a park in your community, you can change the way your park looks and operates, and you will have a sense of pride knowing that you care enough about your park or beach to make a personal commitment to improve and protect it.

There are 33 parks on the Leeward Coast that are ready to be adopted and cared for. Throughout the year, we will provide updates on park adoptions and park ‘work days’ where the community is invited to volunteer their time and resources at specific parks throughout our Leeward communities. If you know of a park in your neighborhood that your family, business, community organization or non-profit would be interested in performing volunteer park beautification activities (loiter pick-up, graffiti removal, and painting park picnic tables and benches) and would like more information on the Hoa Pāka program, please click here to fill out an Adopt-a-Park Brochure.  You can also feel free to contact me at 768-5001 or kmpine@honolulu.gov.

Makaha Community Park is a wonderful example of how community volunteers and the City came together to revitalize this much-loved park.
