If you would like to help out, please join our Association.
The Lanikai Association aims to enhance and protect the unique quality of life and character of our beachside community on the Windward side of Oahu. We do this several ways. We own, manage and maintain Lanikai Park for visitors as well as residents. We own and maintain most of the beach right-of-ways. We are involved in the preservation of our 'aina from the mountain to the sea. We are tackling issues regarding the world-famous Ka'iwa trail, and we are monitoring beach and ocean use to protect our bay. We are also involved in neighborhood issues such as traffic for the benefit of all.

The most important function of the Lanikai Association is the maintenance of the community park and its associated facilities which are frequently used by both young and old for soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, and picnics. The fenced children's playground area included swings, slides and other equipment. The Lanikai park facilities can be rented to families and groups for birthday parties, weddings and other celebrations. For your next family or social gathering call Nainoa Gibson for all the details at 222-8987 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Association members get special rates.
Residents or homeowners living in Lanikai or its sphere of influence who believe it is important to preserve Lanikai's quality of life are welcome to join. Local business owners are also welcome. See Membership for an application form to become an Association member.
Board Meetings are held regularly on the first Monday of the month at 7 PM at the Park. If that day is a holiday, the meeting is held on the following Monday. All meetings are open to the public and often feature speakers of local interest.
Scout troops and the Lanikai Canoe Club are a few groups supported by the Lanikai Association. The Lanikai Association also provides support to the Honolulu Theater for Youth which holds plays at the park, local sports activities and the Keiki Christmas party. We also provide meals for the workers who maintain Lanikai Point.
The semi-annual Craft Fair was started over twenty years ago to raise money to help cover operating costs for the park facilities. This has evolved into a very successful event with a large attendance of both vendors and customers. The Craft Fair has replaced the old luaus as the association's major fund raising event.
The goals articulated over a half century ago by the original founders of the Lanikai Association remain relevant today:
