Maui’s First Official Off Leash Dog Park

While the Kihei “dog people” seemingly have no interest in a regulated off leash dog park, the Parks Department is proceeding with plans to establish one at Keopuilani Park in Kahului to open in 2012. Wailea has had a small private  one for years, and Kihei has a few unauthorized ones, but that seems to be the extent of South Maui’s interest.

Sue Kaing and Karla Peters offered a public presention at the Kahului Communuity Center on Nov 9 to outline the plan for the public, attended by about 25 intrested people, and one obedient dog. If you want more information about this park, or want one developed in Kihei, contact Sue at  875-1647.

  1. Hello I am from the Big Island n my girl friend n I are taking a trip to Maui the middle of May we are also bringing along our dog (chihuahua fox terrier) we were wondering if this park was developed so we can add it to a place to visit while there. Please let us know. You can send me a text msg at
    808-756-2074. Only because I don’t have Internet available n that’s the best way to contact me. Aloha n mahalo.

  2. Yes the dog park is open and seems to please all who use it, whether on two or four legs. We have made numerous vists, and while it could use some amenities, like some shade trees and more benches, the logical division for dogs by size works well
