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.

Beautiful park with great shade trees in the shadow of Diamond Head. Hosts lots of festivals, including a great ukulele festival in July. Love to sit on a bench here and look at the ocean!

There was nothing going on on the park when I came, there where only a few sleepers. I enjoyed the space and the relative quiet at 8 am.

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.
