Kapiolani Park Reviews & Ratings
The park is beautiful! There was a great breeze, a wonderful view of the mountains and ocean. The park is clean and well kept. We came for my son's track meet and truly enjoyed ourselves. Parking was difficult to find though.
Huge, green park with lots of wide open space. Sometimes used for organized sports but still lots of room. Nice grass and sidewalk runs the entire perimeter. Not a ton of parking between the lot and street parking but I've never had too much trouble. A wonderful escape from the consumerism of Waikiki.
Clean, active with people and events like beach volley ball, tiered kite flying exhibitions, snorkeling and exceptional people wathing!! Let me emphatically say this is well worth the ticket cost to fly over....actually I was born here so I adapted rather easily. There are pristine beaches as well, I'll post more later.
The high density hotel and high-dollar stores come to an abrupt stop here at the south end of Waikiki which then provides a graceful lush green lead up to the slopes of Diamond Head. In days of old the Queen's horse track was nearby. Now a days the Waikiki Shell outdoor amphitheatre is next door as is the savanna style Waikiki Zoo. Living just a block away from here I often have had the sensation at night while drifting off to sleep that "...gee....that sounded like a lion roaring - dreams sure seem real..." only to then realize, "wait a minute - that WAS a lion roaring'. Strange jungle sounds happen at night when you live a dozen stories up right night to the zoo.😎🏝🌊
Good place to walk, to have BBQ with friends and family or just to chill and have a nap on the beach. The water most of the time is pretty calm so it's quite safe for children to play in. Good place to stay until sunset because you can see the beautiful color of the sky.
