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. « less

We walked right down the beach from central Waikiki and were glad of the restful shaded area in which to have our picnic lunch. This is a really nice park with plenty to do, or just do nothing. Well worth a trip out.

Great park if you can get parking. Come early. Great to have a big family get together, or just run it out to Diamondhead and back. Small exercise stations, and bathrooms.

Here is a sooooo nice place to go for just taking a walk, being relaxed lying down on the grass, jogging or cycling! ;) You can enjoy huge trees' energy and so great sun shine every day! On Independence Day this year, I bought 2 bicycles one for myself and one for my Hawaiian fiance. And we started cycling to... More

The park is a beautiful place to go for a run, jog, walk, or picnic. I love getting in a morning run and workout at the park, there are pull up bars and various things in place to get a full body workout in outdoors.

This park is very close to our hotel and within easy walking distance. We love the huge kapok and banyan trees, something we can't see back in the Midwest. You can walk the beach here and see surfers and swimmers and families who tailgate at the beach. The zoo and a bandshell are here. For us, there are lots of... More

This is a good area to walk, nice grassy park and close to the zoo and diamond head. You see people run and exercise throughout the park. On Weekends I have attended art and craft markets at the park. It is a very easy walk from central Waikiki to the park.

This is one of my favorite places to go for a run when staying in Waikiki. You get to run past the beautiful beach, past the aquarium, zoo and the historic natatorium. The scenery is great. In the morning, you see people heading out to surf before work. It's also easy to get to Diamond Head Road and run along... More

A good place to take a morning walk or afternoon stroll. It's only a few minutes walk from Waikiki beach. You get a nice view of Diamond Head. There's also the zoo nearby and the Waikiki Shell where they have musical concerts.

I was surprised to go back and see that the local artists now consist of not many hand made items, and the ones that are, are excessively priced, no one is going to pay $450 USD for a shell necklace. Or $48 for a small Hawaiian doll made of straw, first market I have ever been to and bought nothing.... More
