About
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.

A good sized park located between Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. There are frequently displays, free Hawaiian Band Concerts and today the Waikiki Art Fest, Zoo Wall Art and the Na Hula Festival all on the one day.

Visit here at sunset to take your photos and you will miss all the crowds fighting for space at Waikiki. There is a lovely little cafe there with a great vibe.

We found the park by accident. We wanted to see Waikiki Beach and drove past the beach - looking for parking - right into Kapiolani Park where we found a free parking lot. It was too far (for us in our 60’s with bad backs) to walk to Waikiki, so we walked through the park to the nearby Aquarium. The park is just beautiful. Kudos to the Hawaiian government for dedicating this gorgeous piece of real estate to the enjoyment of its people. I have been to many city parks around the world, and this is one of the loveliest ones. And it’s huge. I loved walking through it, seeing the view of Waikiki, the statue of Queen Kapiolani, the banyan trees, people relaxing on the grass and playing ball on the ball fields.

We always like to walk through the park. The views are great and the trees amazing to see. Often used by families, we felt quite comfortable even walking at night.

A scenic and nice park; with a good view of Diamond Head. The park is also close to the Honolulu Zoo; so it's convenient to both the park and the beach.

Located not far from Waikiki, in my opinion as I was staying in a hotel on the Kaʻiulani Avenue, a block from Waikiki Beach, is a great escapee from playing tourist and away from other toursits just to spend some free and easy time walking while exploring what the park has to offer or just to chill and watch life pass by slightly away from the hustle and bustle.

Go to end of the park for a great shot of Diamond Head.

I love this park because it's so versatile! Next to the zoo, part of the beach, and many places to picnic on a bench or laying on a blanket. Always room for you! Clean bathrooms too!

We visited this park with some friends for a July 4 picnic.

It is a beautiful park, with plentiful birds. I saw a red-crested cardinal for the first time.

It has large grassy fields and cool trees, including a large banyan tree.

This park across the road from Waikiki Beaches is ideal for family outings. It is expansive and open, great for kite flying, frisbee, sports etc. There are some wide open areas, and some shaded areas. There is a fitness area with monkey bars and pullup bars among other appartus.
