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.

Lovely family area for BBQs, swimming and just relaxing. Clean, friendly atmosphere. Plenty of shady trees to sit and relax under from the heat of the day. Views to die for. What more could you want !!

A great place to enjoy the fresh air and sun, music at the bandstand, or athletic facilities. The walk around the park is a great way to exercise. You can also enjoy the trees and the beautiful views from here.

Kapiolani Park is located at the Southwest end of Waikiki on Oahu, HI. It is a very popular location; with miles of track available for joggers. With recent changes in local laws, the homeless population no longer dominate the park area; so it is both cleaner, and safer! It's nice spot to have a family picnic; with both BBQ grills,... More

OK, so everything's beautiful in Hawaii, but especially their parks. They do such a good job of keeping them up, and this is no exception. The flowers were lovely, the views always stunning. I'd recommend it!

It is a big park just at the food hill of Diamond Head. Clean, much of green and a zoo nearby. Good place to spent time in holidays. Some may go for hike above to diamond head. I enjoyed early dawn jogging.

It's a fairly big park below Diamond Head. I love to walk around it in the morning. It's pretty busy but a good walk if you want to get out and about. Starbucks is on the corner on the way there and it wanders by the shore for a bit. Theres a lot of great photo ops here too! :)

This is a large park at adjacent to the Honolulu Zoo. It's a wide expanse on grass and trees ringing the outside. It's wonderful to walk around the park and enjoy the scenery, birds, trees, etc.

Kapiolani Park is the place to go for gentle walks and shady (or sunny) picnics. It's also a hub for sports, cultural events, entertainment, art festivals, and concerts. -Check their event calendar for the latest.- The park is also home to a mix of Rainbow Shower Trees that explode with color in the summer.

Beautiful, quiet in the middle of busy place. At the end of the hotel line up a nice place to take in a beautiful view. However the homeless seem to have found it also.
