Anaina Hou Community Park Founders
Their dream eventually became a reality in Anaina Hou Community Park, a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 campus that features an 18-hole botanical miniature golf course that navigates the history of the islands, the Porter Pavilion, a 4000 square foot venue suited to theater arts, concerts, weddings, and other celebrations, a robust farmers market, and the Anaina Hou Playground constructed from 707,544 plastic milk jugs. Anaina Hou Community Park became the quintessential “Gathering Place” on Kauai’s north shore.
In recent years the Porter legacy and mission has broadened to also include a focus on public health and safety and the environment. Anaina Hou Community Park became home to the Kauai North Shore Food Pantry, a partner of Kauai Red Cross, and other first responders and essential services in 2020. The Porter Pavilion hosts the annual Social Awareness Film Festival and is scheduled to launch The Haven @ Anaina Hou, an after school, creative electives & youth career program in January of 2021.
Bill Porter is no longer with us, but his wife Joan is an active member of the Anaina Hou Board of Directors.
