Theres not much to say about this little park. It's closed in on one side by condos and for the most part is a very small area across from a smaller little beach. Never saw much activity going on there because it is considered as a Holy area.

Prince Kuhio Park is a lovely local park. Stop by and its likely a local event will be happening. Last time I was there I saw and heard the Royal Hawaiian Band. Very special.

We are staying at the Prince Kuhio Condos and our lanai looks out over the park. It is a well maintained park with some statues and many lava rock walls as well as a pond. To learn about Prince Kuhio and this preserved location you really need to research on line. There isn't anything within the park that I could... More

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

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.

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.
