  • 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.😎🏝🌊
  • It is a unique place in the world. Why? Because it is a very motivating place to work out and work on your fitness. The amount of people walking, running, doing all kind of exercises is amazing. It all happens in a very relaxed atmosphere. Also for yoga, tai chi and even bow and arrow shooting
  • Spacious park with lots of metered parking closer to the beach and free parking farther away. Plenty of space and activities to do at the park. Lots of shade and picnic tables. Not enough playground areas for kids. Otherwise a great place to spend a day at the park.
  • It's an okay park. Big and wide open. it's good for exercising and running, and sports. Good for picnics also. Offers some protection from the sun but not enough.
  • Great park with running paths, basketball, baseball, tennis and lots more. Huge park with occasional youth or adults playing tournaments in different sports. Parking may be a little tricky. You’d just have to take notice of the signs.
