The community used to consist of condominiums intertwined with an industrial area. Upon completion, Kaka’ako will feature several new hi rise condominiums, parks, shops and restaurants. The area will be more resident friendly as it will have additional parks and recreational areas.
Kaka’ako Waterfront park is a 30 acre park that has picnic areas, water fountains, free parking, an ampitheatre, and jogging paths. There isn’t a sandy beach but the park is popular for its south shore surfing spots. The park is adjacent to Kewalo Basin.
