HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu mayor Mufi Hannemann is asking the city council to rename Aina Moana Beach Park, also known as Magic Island, as President Barack Obama Beach Park.

Obama and his family had a picnic at Magic Island when they visited Honolulu in August 2008.

To make the name change, the city would have to make an exception to its requirement that parks, sites or facilities be named only after people who are deceased.
