  • Beautiful park with amazing trees and beautiful monuments. The zoo is within the park and there’s is a small aquarium just across the street. Both the zoo and aquarium are very reasonably priced and a...  more »
  • Watching the sunrise in dark jogging, I headed to the Kapiolani Park. It had waited more than 30 minutes without signs of the breakfast time, giving "is the Sunrise? "And like Asians? Better. "That is likely..." "is 7:57. Yet so do not try tennis, if you like. "From such a conversation or watching play, many talk about promotional mailings... Kapiolani Park was the place for people to connect.

  • Quiet park. Lots of picnic tables and open spaces. Beautiful banyan trees. Nice ponds and gardens with ducks and other birds. Bike paths all around.
  • Large grassy field- good for running, playing games, taking a dog, looking at pigeons or chickens, and drone flying. There is minimal tree cover- so also good for kit flying. I've never seen it crowded- so if you are planning an event, this might be your spot!
  • Minutes to everything essential. Proximity of the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, Diamond Head Tennis Center, a short drive into the Diamond Head Crater for a great hike. Lots of eating places throughout Waikiki area. Challenge is always the parking. Wear sunscreen and a cap...it is HAWAII.
  • Crowded park with lovely beach. Home of "12 Coconuts" daily AA meeting under the palm trees. East end of Waikiki just footsteps away from Starbucks and shopping. Sprawl on the grass or on the sand. Just so crowded though; but a nice walk east takes one away from the congestion. Enjoy it for what it is ~ a lovely park in a world class setting.
  • A family-friendly park that has a large grassy area with shade and beach access. On a Sunday, there were lots of small family gatherings with self-owned BBQ sets and people playing ukuleles. Heads up that the surf break straight out has some giant rocks and coral below.
