Despite having little to offer, this park on Kealohi Point has picnic potential and views of Heʻeia Fishpond to the south. This location was sacred to the ancient Hawaiians as a place of final judgment at life’s end. Some believe there is a still portal to the spirit world here, but the heiau on this site was destroyed in the 1800s and the park office and community hall were subsequently built over it. A small craft and fruit farmers market is held near the park’s entrance from 9am to 3pm on Sunday, and there’s a sometimes-used traditional Hawaiian outrigger-canoe workshop just past the gate.
