Haleʻiwa Pāka - by Alice Nāmakelua 

Hanohano wale ʻoe e Haleʻiwa Pāka
ʻOhuʻohu i ka popohe o ka pua hau

ʻO ka luli mālie a ka lau o ka niu
I ke aheahe ʻolu a ka makani kolonahe

Lau kanaka mau ʻoe i ka lehulehu
E kipa mau ana e ʻike i kou nani

Ka ʻowē a ke kai i ka ʻae one
E kono mai ana he luana ʻiki kāua

Ua ana ka ʻikena i kou nani
Hanohano wale ʻoe e Haleʻiwa Pāka
Honored are you, Haleʻiwa Park
Adorned with the roundness of the hau flower
 
The gentle sway of the coco palm leaves
In the cool softness of the gentle breeze

You are always crowded with the public
That always visit to see your beauty

The murmur of the sea at the edge of the land
Inviting us to relax a little

Satisfied seeing your beauty
Honored are you, Haleʻiwa Park
