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.

OK - I know a lot of people are put off by all the homeless people in Kapiolani park, but they are what gives the park a community spirit. The park, aside from being well-manicured and very beautiful, is a gathering place for AA, for...More

Waikiki can be quite stressful if you limit yourself to all the bustle of shops and restaurants, but there is an oasis, the Kapiolani Park. Fine trees, peace of mind and the best part of Waikiki Beach. If you have a morning available be sure...More

We walked in this park just about every night! You walk down Wakiki beach towards Diamond Head to get to the park. There's some street people down there(actually in every park) but there's also some police! When your in this park or on Wakiki beach...More

Very large park close to the zoo and Waikiki beach area. Lots of fun statues and trees. We walked through here to go to the beach, parking was pretty filled up close to the beach, so we had to walk through this park to get...More

This park is a definition of much of what people think about when they think about Waikiki. Kapi'olani park is at the end of Kalakau'a Ave, past where Montsarrat Ave. goes inland past the Honolulu Zoo. Take the family to the zoo in the mid-morning...More

This is a lovely park and, due to great timing, we happened upon about 50 booths that had been set up by local artists selling their wares. I contributed to the local economy by spending more than $200 on things that I just had to...More

It was difficult to find parking but I think its an easy place to get to on the bus. There is lots of grassy areas with the zoo, tennis courts and the aquarium close by.

Easy to walk in, gorgeous views of the ocean, nice shade from large trees. There is a nice zoo at the north end, and best of all your right next to lots of beach on the Gold Coast

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.

You will find a few fish around here but nothing terribly exciting. If it's snorkeling you're after - sign up with a private tour (we used OPT) where local guides take you to the best snorkeling places around the island... More
