Overview

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.

Enjoyed the view of the park from our hotel lanai. It was beautiful, very green and is well manicured.

Nice park to take the family. Large grass area for the kids to run around and make them tired. We saw lots of families having bbq picnics. The kids got to see lots of birds and dogs in the park. Kids got hungry and there...More

Fantastic place to walk, exercise on the circuit, play tennis, do tai chi or just chilax. Often @ the Bandstand there is free 🎶 or hula going on.

After the line up of hotels, ABC stores, shops and restaurants it is nice to get to Kapiolani Park and just enjoy the trees, walking on the grass and watching the birds. Great views up to Diamond Head if you walk all the way to...More

Next to the zoo. We went to a free and enjoyable Royal HawaiianBand concert there on the Sunday - again go early to get a shaded seat.

This is nice little park at the eastern end of Kalakaua Avenue. It has a nice beach at the northwestern end, picnic tables and lots of trees for shade!

All I can say is the trees, the trees are massive, the Banyan and Fiscus trees are massive, I have never seen Banyan trees do big. Infact all over the area they are this big

The park in the morning is very quiet and nice. Several groups out there enjoying morning yoga, a jog or just a walk. Enjoy the cool Banyan Trees. Watch out for the sprinklers being turned on!

High-quality Hawaiian Craft fairs are held here often (and also Korean and Okinawa craft fairs). And Ukulele Festivals too. Wander over to see what's on offer, because only the best Fairs are showcased in Kapiolani Park

The park is a nice quiet area really close to Waikiki. We enjoyed walking through. We also spent a day at the zoo.

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.
