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.

Parakeets

Nice park area with lots of birds, close to Waikiki Beach. Keep an eye out for the Green Parakeets, best seen at dusk.

One of my favorite activities in Waikiki is a long walk along the beach through the Kapiolani park. The sound and smell of ocean water, the ocean breeze, the warm sun, all the tropical plants, particularly the Banyan tree with its prop roots and over arching branches,the bright Bougainvillia bush, row of Casuarina trees along the road all make it...

This part was pretty well used while we were here. However,there appear to be a lot of homeless people living in and around the park. Most do not bother you a bit. Appears to be a gathering place for local families to have birthday parties, etc. Right across from the beach if you need to get out of the sun.

On Sundays the Hawaii State Band plays free concerts in the park. It is a simple walk from your hotel. They also play at the Iolani Palace during the week. This is a large park.

We were staying at the Outrigger on the Beach and decided to take a walk towards Diamonhead. We walked on the sidewalk side to do some people watching and not have to walk in the sand. We ended up walking down into Kapiolani Park. We stayed on the sidewalk the entire time passing several beaches and jetties. It's apparent the... More

Lovely park to get away from the sun. Stroll amongst the trees, enjoy the view. Have a panic or take a book to read and relax in the shade.

Family neighborhoods surround the park. It us a great spot to stroll and take in the kids playing, etc. You can hear the parrots that reside there nibbling and socializing on top of the tropical fruit trees. Great place to get away from city noise.

My wife and I enjoy taking morning walks through Kapiolani Park. Lots of beautiful shade trees to sit and relax under. There always seems to be some sort of activity or gathering taking place that may be worth checking out. The police patrol the area pretty often to keep the homeless from settling in and cut down on cases of... More

We go to the park area for breakfast on the beach. Love going to Artfest in the park and meeting the crafters and musicians. Easy parking. Lots of tennis courts.
