HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A long-awaited dog park on Oahu had its grand opening on Sunday near Ala Wai Elementary School on Hihiwai St.
The Ala Wai Dog Park is an off-leash park divided into two areas; one for small dogs and the other for big dogs.
The park is the result of a public-private partnership between the City and the Ala Wai K-9 Playground Association.
A construction company donated the design and materials for the plan which began nine years ago.
The idea survived community resistance and a major sewage spill in the Ala Wai.
