  • The Aquarium while I watched. I don't know honestly what better once represented. Go made for the old Veterans Memorial pool and say, did you know, but you can't. I think it is not the place to come for all the way here to see. But here is the point of view of the Waikiki hotel. I think is a good place to take pictures of the hotels along the beach. NET common sights.

  • Seems built to commemorate the victory of the first world war, but the emphasis in European style. Seems to be finished at that time must have been great, but now is obsolete, somehow, is a lonesome feeling. I thought a tad cleaner, but I could see.

  • Kapiolani Park. Veterans of the first World War Memorial is made. It was Duke kahanamoku swam at the beginning. Obsolete, but renovation enormous cost money will leave left;

  • Generations of Hawaii residents learned to swim here. World records were set here by Olympians like Duke Kahanamoku, Buster Crabbe and Johnny Weismuller. More than 10,000 World War I veterans from Hawaii are memorialized here. Come on folks, let's get behind renovation and reopening this iconic living memorial.
  • February, 2016. Still closed, still falling apart. What a shame. Must have been awesome when it was open. Maybe one day it will be again.
  • Silly Hawaii wasting millions of tax payers dollars on a restoration that was never finished and left to decay. Most of Waikiki has been torn down to provide more shopping for tourists. No appreciation for beautiful architecture or the history. Incredible art deco theaters and other landmarks of Hawaii's heyday are gone forever.
  • Cool place to look at. Too bad it's shut down.
  • Significant memorial of the great war. Pictures available online of the 100m pool in its glory days are impressive. Apparently no profit in maintaining it anymore. No WW1 vets left. Too bad.
