HMP Project Overview
Hawaiian Memorial Park (HMP) began serving the community on Memorial Day in 1958.
In 1983, HMP purchased 203 acres above Pikoiloa Tract from Castle Estate Trust for future cemetery space.
In 1989, HMP gifted 33 acres (of the 203 acres) to the State of Hawaii which allowed them to develop the Hawaii State Veterans Cemetery to provide additional burial space for veterans.
Today, HMP is at 93% capacity. This means that many of Hawaii's families who desire to be interred at HMP near their loved ones may not have this option in the near future.
For the last 10 years, HMP has been working on a plan to expand the capacity of the cemetery on its existing property. This is essential for HMP to continue to provide traditional burial and cremation memorialization options for Hawaii's families.
HMP started the planning process in 2007. The first drafted plan was abandoned in 2010. After listening to community concerns, HMP created a new plan in 2017 using input from the community.
