The Park on Ke’eaumoku’s Lavish Landscape
The Park’s landscaping, designed by local landscape architecture firm Walters, Kimura, Motoda, Inc., embodies the Hawai’i sense of place by combining native, indigenous, and tropical plant material in a cohesive, organic arrangement. Walters, Kimura, Motoda, Inc. has worked on incredible landscapes throughout the island of Oahu, some notable ones being Park Lane Ala Moana, Wailea Beach Villas, Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, International Market Place, and the Hawaii State Art Museum.
With nearly half an acre of park space at the corner of Ke’eaumoku and Rycroft Streets, The Park on Ke’eaumoku is one of the few condominiums located within the Midtown Ala Moana neighborhood to provide a “front yard” for its residents’ use.
The open lawn area is buffered from both streets with plantings of Coconut Palms, Hala trees, Queen Emma Spider Lilies, and Hapu’u, a native Hawaiian tree fern. Other native Hawaiian plantings such as Nanu Gardenia and Carex, a type of sedge, provide fragrance and texture. ‘Uki’uki, an indigenous lily known for its striking, tiny blue flowers has been reintroduced in the planting beds as they were known to have grown naturally throughout the region. Together the layering of these plantings affords residents and guests privacy to enjoy the colors, fragrances, and textures of the garden.
