Ala Moana Regional Park voted amongst the "Best City Parks" in the country

O‘AHU -- Following a month of nationwide voting, Ala Moana Regional Park was voted the 6th "Best City Park" in the USA TODAY 10Best Readers' Choice Awards.

The 119-acre park located in the heart of Honolulu followed five other parks from around the country, celebrating these open spaces for the variety of activities offered. They include:

  1. Gathering Place in Tulsa, OK
  2. Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA
  3. Forest Park in St. Louis, MO
  4. Wildwood Preserve Metropark in Toledo, OH
  5. Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, TX

In addition to this designation, the Honolulu Department of Design and Construction's Ala Moana Regional Park project to restore and enhance the park's features received an American Council of Engineering Companies of Hawai‘i Honor Award as part of their 2024 Engineering Excellence Competition. The project involved the repair of collapsed and damaged canal walls, expansion of pedestrian access at the Pi‘ikoi and Queen Street entries, and improved pond edges and paths. The project was completed in partnership with Bowers and Kubota Consulting who served as the prime consultant. Read more about this excellent effort by visiting:
