The Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park (CORP) is a 269-acre (1.09 km2) public park operated by the City and County of Honolulu. It held its grand opening on July 21, 2001 and it is located in Waipio Gentry, Oahu just off the Kamehameha Highway.

The Central Oahu Regional Park complex currently includes a 20 court tennis center which opened in 2003; the Veterans Memorial Aquatic Center, four youth baseball diamonds, four regulation size baseball diamonds, a four diamond softball complex, as well as other multipurpose fields. A 20-lane archery range and a tennis stadium are currently under construction.

CORP plays host to many different sporting events including swimming, baseball, soccer, football etc.

The park was renamed after Patsy Mink in 2007.

Living in Hawai'i, it is so sad that we do not really know the history of our islands - the history of our hometowns. There is so much of the rich Hawaiian history that fills our islands, yet we are so unaware. Shad Kane wrote an excellent article about the history of the Leeward side (central O'ahu). It sheds a whole new light on the area we call "home," and makes you really think about the ground you walk on. Who walked there before? What kind of events took place on the spot that you're standing? (see the link below)
