Palolo, Hawaii

Pālolo is the name of a valley, stream, and residential neighborhood in Honolulu, Hawaii, United States.[1] The area lies approximately four miles east and inland from downtown Honolulu, less than a mile from Diamond Head. Like many of Hawaii's neighborhoods, Pālolo consists of an entire valley. The mauka (mountain-side) of the valley is agricultural in nature. The makai (ocean-side) of the valley ends approximately at Waialae Avenue and is densely settled, mostly with single-family homes.

Pālolo includes the Kaau Crater, an extinct volcano in the mountains at the back of the valley.

Pālolo Stream runs through the valley before joining Manoa stream to form the Manoa-Palolo drainage canal, which flows into the Ala Wai Canal.[2] In the Hawaiian language, pālolo means "clay".[1]

Jarrett Middle School[3] and Palolo Elementary School[4] are located in Pālolo.

Palolo Valley is bordered on the mauka end by the Koʻolau Range, to the Koko Head (approximately East) side by Wilhelmina Rise, on the makai end by the neighborhood of Kaimuki, and on the Ewa (approximately west) side by Waahila Ridge.
