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 spent 2 weeks in Hawaii, and found ourselves going back to Kapiolani Park. Nice park, & place to relax and people watch. Take time to find this Park - well worth it..pack a picnic lunch & enjoy the day.

This is a beautiful and huge park. There is so much here. I am always glad when we are on the island for the arts festival. So much fun to see all the beautiful pieces

Our hotel (Queen Kapiolani) was right by this park - great "escape" from the city for walks, etc. Nice landscaping, park, zoo, and the banyon trees were amazing. Great to be near this park while still right on the edge of the high rises

Seem to be a lot of homeless hanging around, garbage everywhere, not really a good place for families any more. We don't go there.

We have walked or driven past the park several times, one afternoon during our December 2013 trip we decided to walk the park. Well we were pleasantly surprised, plenty of people though not crowded, plenty of shaded areas, a nice place to just sit and take in the views

This was a nice, quiet park. Very interesting trees. Family friendly. The only downfall is the amount of homeless sleeping there.
