Central Oahu Regional Park
2003 Hawaii A.S.L.A. Merit Award
The Central Oahu Regional Park consists of approximately 269 acres in the southern portion of the central plateau, which lies between the Koolau and the Waianae mountain ranges. It is bounded by Kamehameha Highway (adjoining the Waipio suburban community) to the east; Kipapa Gulch and the Waikele Branch, Naval Magazine, Lualualei to the west; and the Waikele suburban community to the south.
Phase I of the development consisted of a regional park and sports complex equipped with a variety of sports and recreational facilities, including two (2) professional quality baseball fields for training and tournaments, a youth baseball 4-complex, soccer and multi-purpose fields. Recently completed Phase 2 includes a championship style archery target range, a world class 20-court tennis complex, a softball 4-complex, a third baseball field and practice field. When fully developed the park will also have basketball courts and sand volleyball fields, a community center and aquatic center with Olympic-sized swimming and diving pools, an in-line hockey complex; a box car racing track and a skateboard park.
