The park, listed on the state's Historic Register, houses an outdoor concert area for over 8,000 people and a zoo. On many weekends local artists showcase their crafts, which you can purchase.

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
