"When they were under the pavilion, there was just too many of them," said Garrett Martini, a park user.
Martini, who spends a lot of time outside riding his bike, said the tents are now taking over some sections of parks.
"Just in the past few months, not just here but also over on Kalakaua Avenue near the recycling place, there are tents all over the place," said Martini.
Some of the homeless people at the park said they expect to be shuffled around again in the next few weeks, with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation coming to town.
But Lanoza said he doesn't plan on being one of those moving. After dealing with the hardships of being homeless and disabled, he is planning on going to a transitional shelter to get off the streets.
"I'm tired of living like this. It is time to move on," said Lanoza.
But many of the homeless said they won't move off the streets, even though there are 200 shelter spaces available.
The city said it doesn't have any scheduled efforts to clear out the homeless campers, just planned cleaning for the parks, which could temporarily sweep out the homeless people.
