“Pets will always have a big place in the heart of the Our Kaka‘ako community, where we have pet-friendly residences, restaurants, and businesses,” said Serge Krivatsy, Kamehameha Schools commercial real estate senior director of planning and development. “

Krivatsy continued, “We saw just how important our pets are at the first Bark in the Park in January, and with so much positive feedback from everyone who attended, we knew we had to bring this event back. We’re looking forward to getting our pet-loving community together again to have fun outdoors and learn about pet wellness and safety.”

Pet owners can enjoy the event’s signature pet workout classes, pet safety education talks, pop-up market and photo op wall and new attractions.
