Nice place to grab a table and eat lunch

It's a very nice park nestled between the Waikiki Shores hotel and the Hale Koa. It's clean, nice trees for shade, and the Army Museum which is free and worth a visit.

This park is right in front of a hotel I stay in annually. I walk a lot, and cut through it en route to a beach stroll, a Hilton Starbucks visit, or heading to Ala Moana Mall. I am from the Pacific Northwest of NA. I marvel in flora and fauna, and the park never fails to amaze with its... More

Nice little park with cool shade on a hot day. We enjoyed our walk through it as we walked the beach and streets near it.

Great place to spread a blanket out in the shade and be lazy or have a picnic or barbeque with family and friends. Great view of the water and beach. Benches to rest on or picnic tables for meals are to be found also....

If you are spending a week on Waikiki beach and like military history, you should visit this museum. Admission is free and the museum is small enough to get through in one hour, tops. The museum is a converted costal battery with one of the seven inch guns still in place. Some interesting WWII exhibits including US, German, and Japanese... More

The park has some seating, bbq stands and some really big old trees so it's great to get some shade on a hot day. The park is right off the beach so it's quite busy with picnics and vollyball games.

This is a much more enjoyable side of Waikiki to stay on. We enjoy the less congestion and if feels more safe than on the other side of Waikiki
