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.

When in Honolulu, I stay at the Aston Sunset which is just blocks away from this park. It is perfect for walks and to take in the natural beauty.

We love the workout park by the tennis courts which are availability to the public. Lots of room to run around and workout. Beautiful view of ocean and diamond head.

We though this park would have more, but it failed short! We wanted our daughter to have some place to play(swings, etc), but this park just had open grass to run around!

This is a great place to take a jog or a walk and even play tennis or fly a kite. You will see all sorts of teams practicing and working out. After your workout you can cross the street and go for a swim in the Pacific. Great place to be in Honolulu

The park is a beautiful area to drive through and view the local sights. There is some parking to take advantage of and a great view of Diamondhead off in the distance. There was also a good wifi signal and the cell phones worked, and they don't work well as you go up higher along the southern coast of the... More

Kapiolani Park is a perfect spot for a picnic, or maybe taking in the ocean views while you watch kids playing soccer. It's very family friendly and feels safer than some other beaches. There is a lovely artist area in one part of the park and I bought a beautiful Hawaiian scarf that will be a nice souvenir for a... More

There is always something happening at this park. Many "FREE" entertainment available, check local paper. Many events are held here for tourists as well as locals. Great place to just take a walk too.

Too many people, too many tourists, homeless didn't bother anyone in general. Just keep your eyes open like in any other metropolitan metropolis. Ran into people I knew 13 years prior while living there and they recognized me instantly! Gotta love the aloha spirit! But we did go to church together and I saw/heard some people singing and started walking... More

Great for picnics, soccer, running, laying out and they have water and a bathrooms. The backdrop views are amazing as well as the beach. I ran around here to workout and I can't say enough how beautiful this area is. Also does have some booths as noted in other reviews. I don't shop much so can't say what this stuff... More
