Fun Place To Hang Around

We like to drive or walk over to the park and stroll along the ocean. It's fun to watch all the different people that come here.

Prince Kuhio was an important person on Kauai years ago and this park tells the history and is a beautiful place just across the street from the ocean. This park is also just a block away from one of the best snorkel beaches on the island

I happened to be there when the islands were celebrating Prince Kuhio Day. I'm sure that I would have missed this if we had not of being staying across the street from the park. Hint: Don't leave your car parked under the coconut palm trees. (I didn't, but someone else did.)

Very nice setting across from Lawai Beach. Peaceful and historical. Site does have a monument tribute to Prince Kuhio. There are remnants of a heiau, fishpond, and the old family home foundation. Well worth the visit.

As we were staying right next door, I made the point of doing a dawn photo shoot in the park. Definitely a mystical vibe here, with some symbolic remnants of earlier times. On one full moon, locals showed up and had a lua'u (a true and proper one). Respect the birthplace and leave shells for the king.

Only if you are in the area-this is a small well kept park-some ruins & signs & nice blooms. It is on the way to spouting horn.

I was surprised and glad this park is public since a hei'ai is located on site. The public is welcome because there is a monument to Prince Kuhio, who was the last Hawaiian royalty and a member of Congress in the 1920's. the park is the site of his birthplace. The park is small sized with a fish pond and... More

It is a restricted park because you really can't play in it. They have a lot of historical things that you can't play around so it is more of a memorial park. It is a large piece of land that you can see from the road but then again it is merely to walk through and not play in.

Visit here, and if you can, read up on Prince Kuhio in advance or better, print it out and take it with you. We stumbled upon this park while out on a bike ride and I'm very glad we did.

Nice place to walk through and chase roosters. Nice grassy well kept lawn. The park is a little on the small size. Park is located across the street from the beach.
