The homeless shuffle has begun -- again.
After recent sweeps to clear campers from around under the H-1 Freeway and on Oahu's North Shore, more homeless tents have popped up around Honolulu.
Drivers along King Street may have noticed a growing number of tents lining the street at several locations.
Old Stadium Park users said a daily routine happens as the sun goes down and homeless people are kicked out of other areas. That is when tents go up.
But those who live at the park said it is just temporary, because many expect to be moved on to somewhere else as they are shuffled around again.
John Lanoza has lived at Old Stadium park for the past five months but it's not his first time there. He's actually been moved clear across the island, after homeless people were moved out of one camp and then another.
"I was at Keaau Beach Park. From Keaau, I went to Kakaako and then after being moved out of Kakaako, I ended up back here," said Lanoza.
He's not alone. Service providers said the recent clearing of campers on the North Shore as well as under the Nimitz Viaduct have meant more homeless people in parks around town.
"I came here from Kapiolani Park," said homeless camper Donna Abordo.
Some of the homeless campers at the park said they have also been recently moved from the inside pavilion area to the street, making them more visible to people passing by.
"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.
