About
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.

A lovely park with a fabulous view of Diamond Head
Jul 2021
We visited this park with some friends for a July 4 picnic.

It is a beautiful park, with plentiful birds. I saw a red-crested cardinal for the first time.

It has large grassy fields and cool trees, including a large banyan tree.

Lovely Expansive Park - Waikiki
Jun 2021
This park across the road from Waikiki Beaches is ideal for family outings. It is expansive and open, great for kite flying, frisbee, sports etc. There are some wide open areas, and some shaded areas. There is a fitness area with monkey bars and pullup bars among other appartus.

Amazing views of diamond head
Jun 2021 • Family
Excellent park within walking distance to most hotels in Waikiki. Very clean, spacious, bathrooms clean too. Nice for morning walks/jogging. Tennis courts available as well. Plenty benches to catch a breath. Amazing views of the diamond head mountain and the hills to the north.

Great stopover when East of Waikiki
Apr 2021
One can walk to this park from Waikiki beach though it's a bit far if you are in a hotel on the western end. Good for picnics or a resting point as part of a longer touring day in east Oahu.

My daughter was in the middle of track season and we enjoy running together. She is much faster than me and the park is perfect for running a couple of laps (it's 2 miles if you go all the way around) at different paces. It's also easy to take the road out to the lighthouse and the eastern beaches without running so fat that you don't have energy for the rest of your island activities.

Nice park
Nov 2019
During the weekend there are lots of people playing on that park. Lots of people jog in the side walk. It is located bellow Diamond Head and near Waikiki, and is the terminal location for the Honolulu Marathon. I used to play soccar when I was young, and one day as I was resting on the side, I saw a big shadow behind me. It was Wilt Chamberlain, a legend basketball player and a sports fan.

Another beautiful park
Dec 2019
Best place for early am jog or walk, with work out circuit stations, the aquarium of local sealife and our own animal rescue zoo! A must for families with kids. An entire days worth of activity and on Sat the Art in the Park tree line gallery by local artists. In the summer evening they show family movies right on the adjacent
beach. Check at activity desk in your hotel for schedule.

A Gem
Feb 2020 • Couples
Beachfront with Lush green grass, towering Banyan trees, public restroom. Open air showers. Perfect place to spread out and enjoy a Hawaiian day soothed by a symphony of bird songs and breaking waves in the background. Never seems crowded- even on weekends. Little cafe there—Barefoot Beach- serves great lunches and smoothies. Can walk across to the Honolulu zoo or aquarium. Plenty of metered parking with 4 hour time limit.
