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.

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

I visited the site three or four times during my stay in Honolulu. I played tennis here two or three times at night. Courts are lighted and the surfaces were pretty good. The lighting was not so good and I had trouble seeing the ball. Probably ok for recreational players, but we were pretty high level players and it was... More

Unless there is a festival going on Kapiolani is just some grass and trees. And when there is a festival going on in the park - be prepared for a crowd.

It is green and shady and huge, so it is easy to get away from people when downtown Honolulu gets too much...the zoo is here - did not make it, but did hear good things about it - and the Aquarium is across the road - again, I have not been but people who have were raving about it...They have...

The park begins at the easternmost edge of Waikiki. A nice tree covered expanse with lots of room to spread out and shake off the Waikiki crowds. Good place for a morning jog or afternoon sunsets.

In amongst all the built up parts of the area it's great to have this park that's really peaceful. Lots of space and shade it's more the sort of place I'd stop by to enjoy while walking nearby, but not necessarily go out of my way to see it unless an event was on.

A place to gather everyone. From races, picnics, and the occasional farmers market. This is where most of the festivities in O'ahu happens.

Nice place to spend the day just relaxing or walking lots of shade and picnic area as well. On the weekends your likely to find something going on there.Craft fairs, live music food booths and perhaps even the hula. And... More
