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.

This park is soooo pretty! I was on a run from Waikiki to Diamond Head for some exercise after eating really fatty food for several days. I ran into this park and was captivated by the beauty and the view. There was only a few people hanging out on a weekday, so it was very quiet. I got to sit... More

I am a California native, but lived in Honolulu for a year in the 70's. Every few years I return and am always drawn to Kapiolani Park at the base of Diamond Head. Honolulu has always been a vibrant if not congested city. Wherever you are, island breezes, birds, and soft air remind you it's okay to slow down! The... More

Kapiolani Park is a must destination at the base of Diamond Head. If you play tennis, there are many courts available. If lucky, you'll see people playing rugby or soccer matches. A beautiful park setting.

I start every morning with a walk in Kapiolani Park and it starts my day off perfect. Beautiful flowering trees on one side and the ocean on the other. It's so relaxing.

A regular feature of the park on the weekend is an art market which uses the fence of the Honolulu Zoo to display the varied works on sale. Sometimes there also is a craft market, advertised in the press.

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.
