Kapiolani Park

An integral part of just about all the travel packages to Honolulu, a visit to the Kapiolani Park in the state of Hawaii is a wonderful way of getting to know more about the rich social as well as natural history of the region.

The history of the Kapiolani Park dates back to the year 1876 at a time when the land that was to be the park was leased by the Kapiolani Park Association who pledged to pay the sum of $1 for each year to the King David Kalakaua, who was the legal owner of the land. It was his consort, the Queen Kapiolani whom the park has been named after.

Once the monarchy was overthrown, the park was gradually absorbed by the government as a part of their territory. It was later transferred to the realm of the Republic of Hawaii and the reigns of managing the park was given to the group known as the Honolulu Park Commission.
