A worthwhile stop, or a great wedding venue. This is a well-maintained park worth a quick stop if on this side of the island.

This is the birthplace of Prince Kuhio but there is little signage available to interpret the park. It is nice to walk around and imagine what it could have been. Good place to visit if you are at the nearby beach or restaurant.

This park is just really what you see in the picture along with a pond full of big fish. It's nice and peaceful but not very big and I would not go out of my way to visit. It is right next to the water and near all the nicer condos here in Poipu.

This park borders Prince Kuhio Condos. It is a sacred site, so no be respectful. Beautiful grounds to walk and great views of the ocean.

Another FREE activity for the whole family. En route to Spouting Horn, well worth the stop to look at ancient Hawaiian lava block walls, graves and historic markers.

This is a well maintained historical park honoring Prince Kuhio is part of the Koloa Heritage Trail. Prince Kuhio represented Hawaii in Congress for 20 years, long before Hawaii became a state. The park doesn't take long to visit and take a few photos. It's a short stop on the way to the Spouting Horn.

We were parked in front of the park and the "caretaker" unlocked the gate, so I ask him if it would be OK if we walked around inside. He said yes, just dont climb on da walls and stay out of the KAPU area. So we walked around about 20 minutes looking at the monument and memorials. The foundation of... More

The park is dedicated as the birthplace of Prince Kuhio. There is a nice pond and the monument, but not the type of park most people think of as a park to visit. It does have historic significance and is a nice place to visit.

This is more of a monument than a park to visit. Don't waste your time unless you go just before sunset to watch the Ring billed parakeets descend.

This is not a wild, active place to spend much more than 20 minutes, but it's on the way to Spouting Horn and is a neat place to think about how the islanders may have lived in the past, when this was an important cultural spot. Take a few minutes to enjoy the ancient walls, the native trees, and the... More
