Two Kakaako parks will be closing for maintenance starting Sunday and will remain closed through Monday, January 8, 2018. 

Kakaako Waterfront Park will reopen on January 8. The Point Panic area of Kakaako Waterfront Park and Kewalo Basin Park will remain open.

The Kakaako Gateway parks were previously closed in October for maintenance.

Meanwhile, some campers who had previously occupied the Waterfront Park have moved around Gateway Park.  The Hawaii Community Development Authority (HCDA) reports that a new security contractor has been successful in moving the campers out of the park at night when the park closes, but the campers have been setting up on the sidewalk. 

State and City crews will be enforcing park closure hours as well as city ordinances for three days starting Sunday night, and will continue enforcement on an ongoing basis as needed. During and before enforcement, outreach providers will continue to offer services and shelter space to displaced campers.
