Honolulu City and Council officials are looking for the public’s feedback on a renovation plan to Ala Moana Beach Park.

A nine point plan announced last year has already made improvements to the park.  But last week the city released a draft plan that would redesign the 948 existing parking, switching to angled stalls near the McCoy Pavillion.

The proposal would also expand the promenade along the water and remove coral close to the sand to allow easier access to the water.  A new Pi‘ikoi street entrance will welcome pedestrians and bicyclists.

The Department of Parks and Recreation is currently seeking funding from the Honolulu City Council to hire additional staff, which will include park rangers to remain onsite during peak hours.

In a press conference Friday afternoon, Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell said no plans are set in stone. 

The Ala Moana park meeting is open to the public and takes place this Thursday at McCoy Pavilion from 6-8pm.  More information can be found at ouralamoanapark.com.
