Abstract
Part of the City and County of Honolulu Art Deco Parks and Playgrounds multiple property listing, the Haleiwa Beach Park is a 12.7 acre beach front parcel located along Kamehameha Highway and was constructed in 1939. A poured concrete perimeter wall separates the park from the highway. From the highway the park is characterized by large grassed playing fields with a pavilion in the background. The Haleiwa Beach Park is significant for its associations with the development of parks in the City and County of Honolulu in the 1930s. In addition, the park is significant architecturally as its design is typical of the period and reflects the work of Harry Sims Bent, one of the more prominent architects practicing in Honolulu at the time.
