Moanalua Dog Park
- JenMore than a year agoBring Fly Swatter
First time visiting and on a Monday the park was empty. Score! Shaded parking, big trees so I was excited. Upon entering the park, we got mobbed by biting flies. We moved to the back of the park and closer to the empty fountain but the flies were relentless and overwhelming. My dog ran back to the gate pawing to be let out as his back side was getting eaten alive. Spent less than 5 minutes here. So disappointed.

I am a regular at the park and am also a volunteer. It seems like the only complaints come from a select few who are busted breaking the rules or don't think that the rules apply to them for whatever reason. As long as people read and obey the simple rules before coming into the park it's all good !
- AndrewMore than a year agoHelpful and friendly volunteer coordinator and group
The Volunteer coordinator and his group are always very friendly and helpful. They provide flyers ( out of their own $ ) for everyone to share. They assist the City and County of Honolulu in maintaining the park and do their best to keep it a safe and clean place. Their mission is to create awareness of the importance of respecting the park and the rules that are posted.
If you take the time to look into the history you will find that the park is a sacred place. The volunteer coordinator and his group want to keep it that way !! The volunteers spend countless hours to keep the park safe and clean out of the love for the dogs. They are always very respectful and are full of Aloha !!
They encourage everyone to Kokua ( help out ) .
Malama Aina !
- TammieMore than a year agoSAD day at the dog park...
Volunteers can be a little too aggressive. Sad when you don't feel welcomed. I am a rule follower and am very respectful so, I was very surprised when I am was asked if I needed a copy of the rules just mere minutes after walking into the park.
Where was the ALOHA SPIRIT...?....I usually love it there...
- TomMore than a year agoGreat dog park
This park is well maintained and the volunteers do a great job. We visit the park regularly and appreciate the people that come and respect the rules posted !!

Been a regular for 3 years and seen the transformation through the efforts of one man and now his many supporters. It was muddy, dirty, broken trash cans, tons of flies, people bringing in food (this is NOT a people park), rule breakers----but worse, irresponsible owners who don't pick up poop and those with aggressive dogs. My dog was hurt once, almost hurt twice by dogs that shouldn't have been there (owners said "he's only playing"....that "play" turns into an aggressive fight if you're aware of the signs). What a change once the park was adopted by one man, who inspired many other regulars! We stand solidly behind him to keep our beloved dog park safe for our dogs, and pleasant for us. In this society of indifference, we need people to care enough to act. That is what we teach our children.
