Dog Park At Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park Reopening July 31, 2023
Dog park at Patsy T. Mink Central O‘ahu Regional Park reopening July 31
O‘AHU -- The Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) is pleased to announce the scheduled reopening of the off-leash dog park at Patsy T. Mink Central O‘ahu Regional Park on Monday, July 31, 2023.
The dog park was closed on June 7 following damages to the facility's grass from unauthorized use of an organic herbicide. Since then, park staff have held several conversations with park users, and are on track to establish an Adopt-a-Park agreement with community members regarding maintenance of the dog park.
"Like most issues in life, I believe what happened at this dog park can ultimately be boiled down to a miscommunication," said Nate Serota with DPR. "This closure gave us the opportunity to have an open discussion with the dog park users, and establish an amicable path moving forward. We appreciate the patience of the community while they waited for the dog park to be revitalized, and really encourage any community group or volunteer to consider Adopt-a-Park as an excellent avenue to establish a relationship and open line of communication with DPR. That way the passion and good intentions of park users can be steered towards the shared goal of keeping these treasured public spaces in good working order."
