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.

Peaceful and quiet escape from the busyness of Waikiki. check it out for a morning stroll or a nice work out session. A quick jog around the park will keep you in shape but also build an appetite. Lots of activities during the day too if you enjoy people watching.

Catch glimpses of yoga and tai chi classes in the mornings and afternoons, kids playing soccer, and general good vibes. Beautiful and big, under Diamond Head.

Lovely green space at the Diamond Head end of Waikiki. Location for many special events, as well as a nice space to play ball or just wander around.

This is where you go to relax if you are staying in downtown Waikiki. It is a big beautiful park that begins the suburb of Honolulu. There is a small aquarium.

Walked through in December 2013 on a nice sunny day. Mostly green space with trees, some flowers, and some picnic tables. Named in honour of Hawaiian queen. Located near the zoo and Kuhio beach. Suitable for a stroll, picnic, for kids to run around, etc. I think I heard they have live music sometimes here too.

It's really quite lovely, and the scenery is quite pretty. My kids enjoyed it, and I would certainly recommend a visit.

Walk a little further - past the zoo and it becomes much quieter and very peaceful. All the way to the aquarium is lovely.
