The Anaina Hou Community Park is a gathering place for Kauai’s North Shore community in the town of Kilauea. The park is perhaps best known as the location for the mini golf course and botanical garden.
The park hosts a variety of community events including the Ahi Lele Fire Show, concerts, and days dedicated to the keiki (children). A recent addition to the park is the Anaina Hou Playground built with structures that illustrate Hawaiian history.
The peaceful Wai Koa Loop Trail is also located at the park but the trail has been temporarily closed for several years after a park ownership change and damage to the trail from the historic April 2018 flooding.
The Anaina Hou Farmers Market is open every Saturday morning at the park. The market features more than 40 island vendors selling Kauai-grown produce and Kauai-made crafts. Shrimp kabob, Asian cuisine, fresh fish, eggs, goat cheese, baked goods, frosties, honey, chocolate, plants, pineapples and papayas are some of the items that might be found at the market.
