August 26 is International Dog Day, and we are celebrating since it’s no secret Jack Tyrrell and Company (JTC) loves dogs! We recognize the important role that dogs play in our friends’ and clients’ lives. For the past several years, JTC, through the Rainee Barkhorn Foundation, has supported the work of the Hawaiian Humane Society’s PetWalk.
One of the best things about Ward Village are its dog-friendly facilities. All Ward Village residences include a dog run area. If your dog is craving more room to exercise, Kolowalu Park and Victoria Ward Park offer a large expanse to run and an opportunity to socialize with other Ward Village neighbors. You may also find dogs and their owners hanging out at South Shore Market to escape the heat. Ward Village is one of the few dog-friendly places to relax in the neighborhood since the City and County of Honolulu still does not allow dogs at Ala Moana Beach Park (though, the Final Environmental Impact Statement for Ala Moana Regional Park and Magic Island Improvements includes a dog park in the future).
