The Lanikai 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.
    If you would like to help out, please join our Association.

Lanikai Community Park

        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 lanikaiassociation@gmail.com. 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.

    Our newsletter, The Lanikite, is a cohesive force for Association members, keeping them informed of city issues and events and focused on the purposes of the organization.

 

Meetings

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.




Civic Involvement

    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.


Social Events

    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.

    A lively group of marching Lanikai Association members wearing colorful costumes is a popular feature of the city's annual Woe's parade and New Year's breakfast.


Looking Ahead

    The goals articulated over a half century ago by the original founders of the Lanikai Association remain relevant today:

  • Maintaining Lanikai's unique quality of life for all residents.
  • Controlling the impact of tourist-oriented commercial activities on the residential quality of life in Lanikai.
  • Developing creative solutions to the problems caused by tourism and excessive development, both commercial and residential; also, advancing the common interests of residents, property owners and businesses consistent with Lanikai's residential character.
  • Preserving Lanikai's architectural and village character.
  • Protecting Lanikai's environment and its open space resources.
    As it continues to pursue these goals, the Association will remain a positive, responsible force for the preservation and protection of our neighborhoods and the residential values of Lanikai.
