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.

I have enjoyed this park many times over the years on visits to Honolulu. Look for the "Brazilian Cardinal", a red-crested bird not native to Hawaii but pretty nonetheless. Plenty of benches and nice grass to rest or stroll just to suit your mood.

This is one of the few green spaces left in Waikiki. The park itself is rather large. There are some ballfields, tennis courts, a small exercise course and restroom facilities. Parking is usually fairly easy, spaces are metered from 10 AM till 6 PM around the park. Unfortunately there are no children's play equipment. The aquarium is located across the... More

This park sits in the middle between Waikiki and per say diamond head path, you can sit and observe the locals relaxing, ride your bike, watch people, turn around and see the diamond head or simply relax under a coconut tree....locals and tourists mingle here in a relaxing atmosphere.

Located just beyond the main Waikiki beach spots to the east and across the street. Mainly used for sporting events like soccer games or finish line for marathons. Lots of space for a picnic where children can run around.

Simply said, it's just beautiful. You can relax under a coconut tree, listen to the waves crash, watch tropical birds, gaze at Diamond Head or an incredible view of Waikiki Beach looking west along the entire beach.

This was one of the nicer beaches we visited. There is good swimming and facilities on site. Sand is beautiful and so is the water with mountains in the background.

In the middle of commerce with restaurants, shopping, schools, stores, hospitals and life going on fast and furious while you can recline a bit and just chill and check. Well kept grounds but parking is tough and it can be busy with folks in a hurry.

Kapiolani Park is a beautiful area with great views of Diamond Head. Good for walking and just plain relaxing. It always seems to be well taken care of.
