The non-profit group Hui'ilio Hawai'i has been working on the project and raising funds for three years. They formed a private-public partnership with the city of Honolulu, which requires the city to clear the land, install irrigation and fencing. The non-profit will provide the fence material, benches, and some landscaping.
While the grass will take a few months to grow in strong enough to withstand all those pounding paws, dogs and Hawaii Kai residents alike hope for an opening in the Spring.
To contribute to the dog park through the non-profit, contact me by email, Barbara@BarbarasHawaii.com, or visit their web site. Until the park is a reality, I will donate 10% of all commissions to the group.
