By News Release @ 10:19 PM :: 1106 Views :: Honolulu County, Homelessness

Week-long park closure scheduled for portion of Ulehawa Beach Park

Closure from April 24 – May 1, 2024 for several park clean-up efforts  

News Release from Honolulu DPR, April 12, 2024

O‘AHU – The Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), in conjunction with Councilmember Andria Tupola, announces the scheduled closure for a portion of Ulehawa Beach Park from Wednesday, April 24 at 10 p.m. until Wednesday, May 1 at 5 a.m.

The week-long park closure will impact the approximately mile-long stretch of Leeward coastline from the Ulehawa Canal (near Mōīhihi St.) to Depots Beach (near Haleakalā Ave.).

The closure is necessary for City and volunteer clean-up efforts to remove the large amounts of ‘ōpala (trash) in the area. This includes a Stored Property Ordinance enforcement effort, utilizing DPR staff from across O‘ahu, Department of Facility Maintenance personnel, and officers with the Honolulu Police Department. Following this enforcement, volunteers from the community and Councilmember Tupola’s office will join DPR staff to remove any remnant ‘ōpala.

Before the park is reopened, DPR staff are scheduled to conduct additional beach cleaning and maintenance.  We appreciate the patience and understanding of the Nānākuli community while this park is closed for these clean-up efforts.

If you need an auxiliary aid/service, other accommodations due to a disability, or an interpreter for a language other than English in reference to this announcement, please contact the Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation at (808) 768-3003 on weekdays from 7:45 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. or email at least three business days before the scheduled event. Without sufficient advanced notice, it may not be possible to fulfill requests.
