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

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

close to the action green space used for many activities as well as just wandering through the lovely open green space. I wouldn't go out of my way but if in the area a lovely spot to rest or enjoy an event.

Great space really nice to relax off the beach. Good for walks, gems or to sit and read. Nice to find a big open space like this.

I give this park an excellent rating because it is a beautiful park yes, but it also encompasses so many things. I have to say first though, for the visitors that right now there is "renovations" going on where new parking is being built and some work is being done, so it makes it slightly less lovely and a little...

Asides from its proximity to Waikiki Beaches, restaurants and Hotels, Kapiolani Park hosts "Art on the Zoo Fence" every Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm. There are some great exhibits and artists selling their creations there....all of which have an Island flair and inspiration. Of course, as some reviews have stated there are squatters and homeless in a lot... More

This park is a pleasant treat in very busy Waikiki . Usually on weekends there is an art festival or craft fair going on. The Honolulu zoo is also part of this park. The beautiful banyan trees are amazing.

Kapiolani Park is very beautiful with the lush vegetation, trees, views to Diamond Head and to the mountains further back from Waikiki. The fountains are very beautiful and peaceful. We recommend a walk from Waikiki to Kapiolani Park - which is only about 15 minutes - best times are early in the morning of early in the evening to avoid... More

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.
