Free parking & really nice walking/biking paths. Large homeless & cat populations though. Great area to watch the sunset. Always a lot of couples getting their wedding photos done here. Also has restrooms and two stairways to access the ocean. Near the cruise terminals.

I was waiting for my friend and as a tourist after 4pm (which is the time most attractions close), I instinctively looked for the sea. The closest park was the Kakaako Waterfront Park. It was so unexpected, I walked and walked and went over the...More

Came here for the NYE party and it was fantastic. Drinks are expensive so id recommend pre-gaming. There were different stages and DJ's playing EDM music and the fireworks were killer.

Growing up in sweet Hawai'i nei, Kakaako was one of my favorite places to visit. To just sit out on the rock wall, plate lunch in hand staring out into the ocean. My last visit I noticed that the park hasn't been maintained. The grass...More
