Built in 1922 when the plantation village was established, this large, grassy park serves as the center of family recreational activities with a pavilion, picnic tables, and community center. The main road, Lana'i Avenue,runs along the eastern end, while over a hundred ninety-foot Cook Island pines rise above the center of town towering over the stores, cafés and offices that line all four sides.
Most businesses, restaurants, and the playhouse are located on the streets which mark the boundaries of the park.
