If you want to take a few minutes to centre and have some quiet, a short walk around this park will do the trick. Close to this park is a small beach where you can find surfers. You could have a picnic lunch in the park but be mindful of the need to stay off the rock walls.

We stayed in a condo across the street,had views from our lain. Went for a walk through one night. It's amazing how it still holds that spiritual power. Nice green lawns and a fish pond, with very active fish. Stop by and see the monument. Great place for island history.

Beautiful and really interesting info about the wildlife on the island. Worth the stop and the entrance fee $5 for adults -kids are free. Pretty nice gift shop too which my clan always checks out.

I have been here more than once. The first time, I was spending a week about two hundred yards away, visited on a misty morning, not just the only haole there, the only person. Development has crept closer in the intervening years, but it is still a noteworthy, solitary monument to Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole, a titanic figure in the... More

Interesting to read the history but not a lot more than that to do. Traveling on the east side of the island in Kapaa there are signs that can be read informing the reader more of the history in that area of the island more than Prince Kuhio Park. It is well done and you can walk along the shores... More

This part is dedicated to Prince Kuhio who was also a representative of Hawaii. It's small and kind of sacred. Lots of Chickens, a pavilion and right on the beach. Show respect when you are here.

Driving to the botanical garden..... then take a quick break to learn a bit of history. Not much here so you are in and out quickly.

There is a statue, and remnants of ancient Hawaiian walls and structures here. There is a small interpretive plaque, but not much else in the park.

Hawaiian history buffs need to visit and if you are a geocacher you must come to read the plaque. Can't get the correct solution from the net and besides the final is close so you have to come anyway.

My husband loves history of all kinds, so he insisted that we stop at this park when we were in the area. He could read plaques all day. Me? Not so much. Our 7YO son enjoyed running in the grass and pretending he was a train engine, but he quickly ran out of gas in the heat. Thankfully, there was... More
