We were parked in front of the park and the "caretaker" unlocked the gate, so I ask him if it would be OK if we walked around inside. He said yes, just dont climb on da walls and stay out of the KAPU area. So we walked around about 20 minutes looking at the monument and memorials. The foundation of... More

The park is dedicated as the birthplace of Prince Kuhio. There is a nice pond and the monument, but not the type of park most people think of as a park to visit. It does have historic significance and is a nice place to visit.

This is more of a monument than a park to visit. Don't waste your time unless you go just before sunset to watch the Ring billed parakeets descend.

This is not a wild, active place to spend much more than 20 minutes, but it's on the way to Spouting Horn and is a neat place to think about how the islanders may have lived in the past, when this was an important cultural spot. Take a few minutes to enjoy the ancient walls, the native trees, and the... More

If you want to take a few minutes to centre and have some quiet, a short walk around this park will do the trick. Close to this park is a small beach where you can find surfers. You could have a picnic lunch in the park but be mindful of the need to stay off the rock walls.

We stayed in a condo across the street,had views from our lain. Went for a walk through one night. It's amazing how it still holds that spiritual power. Nice green lawns and a fish pond, with very active fish. Stop by and see the monument. Great place for island history.

Beautiful and really interesting info about the wildlife on the island. Worth the stop and the entrance fee $5 for adults -kids are free. Pretty nice gift shop too which my clan always checks out.

I have been here more than once. The first time, I was spending a week about two hundred yards away, visited on a misty morning, not just the only haole there, the only person. Development has crept closer in the intervening years, but it is still a noteworthy, solitary monument to Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana'ole, a titanic figure in the... More

Interesting to read the history but not a lot more than that to do. Traveling on the east side of the island in Kapaa there are signs that can be read informing the reader more of the history in that area of the island more than Prince Kuhio Park. It is well done and you can walk along the shores... More
