Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice

shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Keaau,
the Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition, this Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 99.0% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 98.2% of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 8.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 98.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Hawaiian Paradise Park neighborhood has more
Portuguese and Puerto Rican ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 2.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Portuguese ancestry and 7.9% have Puerto Rican ancestry.
Hawaiian Paradise Park is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 8.4% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Tagalog, which is the first language of the Philippine region, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.2% of the neighborhoods in America.
