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.

Have been to Honolulu many times but had never been to Kapiolani Park. We ran the 2017 Honolulu Marathon and we ended up here at the finish. Wow. It was a large green space that included ponds, walkways, concert bandstands, some memorials and statues and...More

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.

Great place to picnic and go to the beach. beautiful views and food available at L&L Hawaiian Barbque, if you did not bring picnic lunch. Really good food! All locals eat here if they do not bring their own food

This is a big park, nice to look at but the actual playing surface it pretty uneven, lots of potholes for the players to trip over!! But there are big beautiful trees and it is a good area for runners/walkers near Waikiki.

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.
