They are still planning to build one at Ocean Pointe as far as I know. The development company made the people camped at Hau Bush leave.

it wasnt the developer Haseko that made the homeless leave the area, it was HPD. The Marina is about half way finished, might take another year.

Hau bush is a beautiful park. with the view of diamond head the nice beach and yes the new marina. But youll always find homeless any where u go. And ice is such a strong drug it consumes people and make them forget wats important in the real world. Dont put down the people they cant help it.

I don't know if people know why we call Hau Bush park that name or if they even know where the park was. Let me explain. I've been living in Ewa Beach since 1957. My father had a least for 25.00 dollars a year from Campbell Estate for a beach cottage in front shark country. My old man bought our house on papipi road for 17,000 dollars. So on holidays &summer vacation we stayed down the shack. Next to us if you're looking out to the ocean was the Roxburg Ohana. After they gave up the least, the Farm Ohana took over. That was probably in 1965. Next to them was this old man Kui Ching. Then was Ewa Plantation.There was all Hau Bush Trees on the beach.

Hau Bush used to be the place to pick up seaweed, but the the commercial harvesters wiped it out. Then Haseko bought up the area and changed it into a constuction siter, all the while telling the public about all the public boat ramps and harbor they were going to provide, and how peachy it was going to be. One man, Jeff Alexander, fought them for years until he finally gave up and moved to the big island. Now years later, the place is a shambles and all's that's happened is a huge housing development is towering above Papipia Road where the haole owners can look down from their walled-in fortress at the locals.

There is a bathroom, but the druggies tear the roof off looking for copper wire, and steal all the piping as fast as it's repaired. All beach parking is gone except for a small area, no more 4x4 driving there. Take a drive, the place has completely changed, and not for the better. Yuppies moving closer and closer, and pretty soon they'll start whining about the locals on "their " beach.

Hau Bush is really called Oneula Beach Park. Many people enjoy the park for football practice, soccer, surfing, camping, hanging out. Yes - the bathrooms are smashed up. And forget about the Marina ever opening up to the ocean. Maybe in another 5 years - with the construction of a a few stores, restaurants and homes adjacent to this park - it may be a beautiful, clean park. But 4 now it will be the wild wild west.

Didn't finish off what i was saying. There was all hau trees at the plantation park fronting the ocean.As keiki's we would run around playing chase master. We even could flatten the leaves down and go sleep if you wanted.Up in trees you had the best view of shark country when the surf was pumping. As Archie Bunker would say THOSE WERE THE DAYS... ALOHA.

That's gone too. The developer wanted to essentially find a way to keep locals out of the area, but met too much opposition. Started of with promise of five public boat ramps and a parking lot for trailers at the first meeting, then was reduced to two ramps, then reduced to two ramps and no parking for trailers, then to no ramps and no parking at all, then finally to a wall seperating the resort from the public altogether. Finally, they fired all the locals they had hired to sell it to the public, then they shut down altogether. One polititian, Jeff Alexander, had their number from the beginning. After all that, they erected a thirty foot high wall seperating the "good people" from the local people along Papipi road, and were later forced to take it down some. A good friend of mine sued the Japanese developer, Haseko, for some shady shyt they pulled concerning excavation, and has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from them. He also cost some mid-level Japanese public relations shmucks their jobs. Couldn't have happened to a better company.
