The Centennial Park Waikiki Park Care Committee

Centennial Park Waikiki is a beautiful green oasis that became a reality on February 1, 2021. It was made possible through an agreement between the City & County of Honolulu, the Rotary Club of Honolulu (RCOH) and the support of the Rotary District 5000 Foundation. RCOH volunteers organized the initial  planting  of  200  shrubs  and  5,000 ground cover plants in September 2020 with the hands-on efforts of 76 volunteer community members. While the C&C Parks Department is responsible for the upkeep of the trees and grass, the Park Care Committee is working to continue important landscape management to facilitate the health and safety of the ground cover. The Committee is seeking volunteer groups to participate in a rotating schedule of on-site landscape maintenance.

Here's what we need:

  • Five (5) people in your group
  • Bring your own weeding tools or use ours
  • Your work session is only two (2) hours and can be scheduled as a "pau hana" event on a weekday or a morning event on a weekend.
  • Choose which date you would like to come:
  • Friday, August 6th 4-6PM
  • Saturday, August 15th 8-10AM

It will be about 6 weeks between sessions. Stay tuned for the schedule from August to the end of the year!

To help us find interested volunteers for the above, please join us for a special Zoom meeting on Thursday, July 22nd at 5PM. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87309571117?pwd=b1FkVzc4WjFVVWJFd3RDeGU4RFJHUT09

Here's what we are going to talk about:

  • How does all of this work? Time, equipment, task etc.
  • Identify groups that would be interested in volunteering for the August dates.
  • Who are people that our fellow Rotarians know who could be team leaders?

The Park Care Committee includes groups of volunteers of all ages. Participating is an opportunity for residents and organizations to get involved in its care andback to working in Mother Earth!
