Went walking every day from our rental house and passed by this lovely area, you can walk on the grounds, there are several markers to read from.
We have stayed across the street on two seperate occcasions and thought we'd better go look and see. There wasn't much to see. Not much signage or explanation of the park. Wish there has been more information about the park (some historic info on some more signs). There was some "rubble" which had clearly been something, but there were no... More
This is on the way to National Tropical Botanical Gardens, the Sheraton, Spouting Horn, so if you want to combine it with something I recommend that. This is a very quick pullover stop out of you car. 20 mins max. It has a historical marker that explains the stop. You cannot walk up to the monument. It was interesting for... More
As the birth place of Prince Kuhio in a grass hut, it's a sad attempt to honor a good man and an important piece of island history. Small statue, aligned rocks, dead grass, and a picnic shelter. If you like history, go to the History Museum in Lahui and spend a half-day.

There is not much to it as it is a site preserved to honour Prince Kuhio, the last prince of the Hawaiian royal family.

Full of life and harking back to... More
Saying this park needs playground equipment totally misses the cultural significance of the area! Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole, Delegate to Congress and tireless worker for native Hawaiian rights, was born on this very spot along the Po'ipu coast at Kukui'ula in 1871. He was the last royal heir to the Hawaiian throne. The foundation of his royal home and fishpond... More
This is a lovely, quaint park with historic building foundations, fabulous views and a nice little pond. A quiet place to get away from the tourist crowd. Thankfully, this is an historic location so the likelihood is slim that they'd put in a tourist playground here for people who don't see any value to simple, serene, and culturally valuable places.
