Huge park that includes the zoo - lots of places to sit but an amazing array of wild birds to look at. Bit more interesting than your average sparrow!

Lovely park and had an arts and crafts festival on when I was there so lots of stalls to look round and places to spend your cash! Otherwise nice green area for a stroll.

A pedestrian friendly park with lots of open space. The Honolulu zoo at the west end, the beach and Honolulu Aquarium on the ocean side and Diamond Head looking down over everything. Lots of playing fields to kick or throw a ball around.

A nice relaxing park in the hustle and bustle of Honolulu. We rented Biki bicycles from here to explore Ala Moana, Aloha Tower & the Downtown area.

There are a lot of places you can ask about schedules of events. But the front desk of your hotel should have some of that information and they usually had booklets about the many different tours, etc.
