Aloha! Moanalua Dog Park is the first City & County of Honolulu off-leash dog park*. It was opened in April 2004 through the efforts of the Moanalua Gardens Community Association (“MGCA”) and our representatives. ‘Ilio Hau‘oli Paka means “happy dog park” in Hawaiian. The park was officially nicknamed by Jeanine Shimomura, a Moanalua Elementary School student who won a “Name the Dog Park” contest sponsored by the MGCA. The MGCA initially “adopted” the park and coordinated volunteers to launch the dog park – now we depend on you, the park users, to get involved and make sure the park stays clean and happy. Please acquaint yourself with the rules and etiquette before using the park, as different dog parks have different rules.
The park is open 7 days a week during daylight hours, and is closed on Tuesdays until noon for maintenance.
Puppies at Dog Parks
Although it is important to begin socializing your dog at an early age, we do not recommend bringing a puppy to the dog park until he or she has had all necessary vaccinations. This would normally be around 4 months old.
