Today, it is a gathering place that thrives with walkers, runners, tennis enthusiasts and picnickers. Grab lunch on Kalakaua Avenue and enjoy it in one of the shaded picnic areas scattered around this colorful park.

This is a great park right in the Waikiki area. Kapiolani park sits at the end of Kakakaua Ave right at the foot of Diamond Head Crater. We were here for the weekend art fair where local artists sell their craft. Several food booths were there. One had Hawaiian pineapple sausage on a bun which was unique and very tasty.... More

This park is at the edge of Waikiki beach. Beautiful scenery and is bordered by beautiful trees. Great view of the exterior of Diamond Head. Calm and serene with locals playing and lots of wide open space.

I stayed near here and it seems like there is always something going on. I went to an art show one day and another little park jam another day. Plus there is equipment here for people to work out on which is nice.

Were trying to catch a trolley back to our hotel the Hilton Hawaiian Village ( never got one and walked the entire way back to hotel). Anyways, we walked around the park and took some pictures of some beautiful trees. Didn't really spend a... More

This is a great place to have a family picnic. It is huge and sits right below Diamond Head. It is also a great place to exercise, whether it be walking, jogging, playing tennis, etc.

When I came upon this park, I was happy to see it because it marked the end of the Honolulu Marathon! The park was a wonderful place to rest, refuel and relax after the rainy race. I loved the views of the ocean and the trees. While thousands of people had converged on this spot, there was ample elbow room... More

Great park within walking distance of Waikiki. Spent some quiet time walking around and people watching here one afternoon. It's nice and peaceful, the locals are friendly, struck up a conversation with one such local and got some great tips on other areas to visit while on Oahu, beautiful banyan trees and a pond also, it's close to the Zoo...

Kapi'olani Park is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. If you can stake out some space under a tree, it's a beautiful place to spend a relaxing morning or afternoon. There are also tons of festivals, craft fairs, and special events happening here all year round.The Waikiki Shell amphitheater is here and a stage where there are often hula... More

If you're staying in Waikiki, this park has a much nicer beach than those in the hotel zone. It also has changing rooms and showers, great for maximizing beach time on your last day.
