Efforts to renovate pathway along Kapi‘olani Park continue

Three-quarter mile stretch of shared-use path between Monsarrat Ave. and Poni Moi Rd. to be improved

O‘AHU -- Improvements to a pedestrian route bordering Kapi‘olani Park are progressing next week as part of an on-going effort to renovate this popular pathway at the Queen's park.

An approximately three-quarter mile stretch of the shared-use path along the makai-side of Paki Avenue between Monsarrat Ave. and Poni Moi Rd. will be renovated to improve circulation, accessibility, and safety.

This work will require intermittent closure of one lane of vehicular traffic along the makai-side of Paki Ave. The project will be completed in phases, beginning at Monsarrat Ave. and progressing towards Diamond Head, with a portion of the pathway closed while under renovation. The entire project is scheduled to be finished, and the pathway reopened, near the end of summer 2023.

Several parking stalls in the lot across from Paki Hale will be utilized by the contractor as part of this project. The $665,000 construction contract was awarded to Peterson Bros Construction, Inc.

This project represents a continuation of the effort to improve this popular pathway along Paki Ave. The previous project, bordering the Honolulu Zoo from Kapahulu to Monsarrat, improved about a quarter mile of the pathway in 2021.

Utilized by King David Kalākaua as polo fields, and dedicated in honor of Queen Kapi‘olani in 1877, the 200-acre Kapi‘olani Park remains one of the City's largest and most popular public spaces. Recognized as the second oldest park land managed by the Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation, the park encompasses other notable attractions such as the Waikīkī Shell and Honolulu Zoo.
