Description: Many of Hawaii’s alii (royalty) lived in Waikiki and King Kalakaua...
Many of Hawaii’s alii (royalty) lived in Waikiki and King Kalakaua selected a 300-acre track of land at the base of Diamond Head for a public park in 1867. 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.

Great family place

This park is so great for family and recreation. It's very close to Kaimana beach ... walking distrance. It's good for picnics, sports, walking, running, and just relaxing :)

Kapiolani Park is one of the "jewels" of Honolulu and has been preserved as a park and open space available for public use amidst the seemingly unbridled growth and development of Honolulu during the second half of the 20th Century and beyond. Fronting famous Waikiki Beach, Queen's Beach, and Diamond Head, it offers tennis courts, walking/jogging trails, picnicking, the Waikiki... More

Spent 4 hours here attending the 33rd annual Hawaiian Slack Key Festival attended mostly by residents There were some vendors selling arts, crafts, food, t-shirts, guitars and festival merchandise. The emcee, Harold, was hilarious. The entertainers were all very good. This is the first time we have heard their music. Very nice park. Each section is different. Families have picnics... More

The great thing about Kapi'olani Park is that there can be something for everyone. There are tennis courts and plenty of grassy space to kick around a soccer ball. It is right across from the ocean! On the weekends, there are often events and festivals for the entire family to enjoy. It is convenient to walk from Waikiki or to... More

right in the city up springs this beautiful park. A nice walk through on an afternoon is just perfect. Observing the beauty that is all around you on Oahu. Soak up EVERYTHING while you are there because once home you will miss this paradise and still find things you wish you had done. Even after 17 days of going everywhere... More

An expansive property around Waikiki, there is something here for everyone from just peaceful park settings, an aquarium, to a zoo. Worth the stroll, especially on a day without an agenda while in paradise.

NIce park. Our hotel was right across the street from the Kapiolani Park. It's right at the end of Waikiki. The difference between the shops and the beach at Waikiki and the park could not be bigger. Crowded and full, to quiet. Nice place to come to rest.

Escape the rat race and the designer label shops, join the locals for a rest and relax with green grass, picnic tables and toilets, with the beach and a walking track along the beach front.

Beautiful park with plenty of activities going on, especially on the weekends. Adequate parking during the week but can be challenging on the weekends. Park is well maintained. Plenty of shade. Restrooms on either side of the park. Located on the edge of Waikiki, it's across the street from the beach & close to the Honolulu Zoo & the Waikiki... More
