The Magic of Kapi’olani Park

A park dedicated to the public by a King! Named after his wife, Queen Kapiʻolani, the second oldest park was originally King David Kalākaua’s polo field and playground. In 1877 he dedicated this royal park to the public. Kapiolani Park is situated perfectly on the edges of Waikiki and the Diamond Head Gold Coast.

It is no surprise that it is one of the most popular parks on Oahu. Within the 200 acres, there is also the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Shell where many concerts and events are held. Not to mention the Outrigger Canoe Club, Elk’s Club and my personal favorite, our Hawaii Life office which is connected to the Kaimana Hotel/Kaimana Beach directly across the street from the park.

If you live here or are visiting, I highly recommend taking time to stroll through the park, maybe even have a picnic! From mauka (mountain) to makai (ocean) you have 360 views of some of the most spectacular beauty that Hawaii has to offer.
