We visited this park because there was an Art Fair on the grounds one weekend. The park itself is large, well maintained, and family oriented. We found many people enjoying the open spaces and beauty of this park.

very large ground -- zoo and aquarium near by there were several groups typically playing games or practicing but around big trees, you could just stay and maybe take a nap or something.

We walk through and around the park each visit. It's easy walking and generally has art work or other items for sale especially on the weekends

You can walk from Kapiolani Park to Waikiki beach in minutes and if you park on the opposite side fo Waikiki Beach Parking is free. However, you will have to walk through the Park in order to get there but it is worth it.

I hung out here with my 7 year old daughter under the banyan trees while my son and husband suited up for a surf lesson at Hans Hedermann. We could’ve stayed for hours. She loved it.

We decided to stay away from this crazy place but wanted to visit. “Been there-done that”. I don’t think there is a good time to visit. Staying in Ko Olina and loving it.

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
