Overview
More
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.

Just to the soth of crowded Waikiki is this park. Plenty of parking, picnic tables, and grilling allowed ( bring your own). No beach for swimming, but if you just wanna catch some rays next to the water this is perfect. We grabbed a spot...More

Lovely park away from main strip but unfortunately feels unsafe. Homeless are harmless but most avoided them by dodging occupied spots.

A wonderful area to walk, have a picnic and enjoy the views of Diamond Head and Waikiki. Quiet and yet only minutes from the busier area of Waikiki

Excellent place to walk around and relax. There are some tennis courts, but I don't know how one makes a reservation to use them; otherwise, easy access to parts of the beach.

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.
