City closing Pawaa park, sidewalk for 2-week maintenance

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:46 p.m. HST, Sep 25, 2013

The city will close a city park and surrounding sidewalk in Pawaa, which is now used by the homeless as a campsite, for two weeks beginning Thursday for a maintenance project.

The city Department of Parks and Recreation will close Pawaa In-Ha Park, near South King and McCully streets, for scheduled maintenance from Thursday to Oct. 9. Tree-trimming, grass-cutting, aerating, fertilizing, and other routine maintenance will be conducted during the closure of the park.   

The Department of Facility Maintenance will close the sidewalk along the mauka side of King Street fronting the Pawaa park for maintenance during the same time.

I think you guys made a mistake, its South King Street and Kaheka Street where this park is located, not McCully?

Great idea. This is a friendship park between Hawaii and Korea and it's truly embarrassing to me to see the Korean tourists pull up on mini-buses and then see the sidewalk leeches and the junk in the park. The City sweeps have been a joke - the guys are back 4 hours after the sweep. One problem is that the homeless use the parking areas behind the piano store next door to camp and use the hose faucets to wash up so this may just move them on to private property in the area.
