Located on the banks of the Wailoa River, the park offers many places to wander and relax. 

The park encircles Waiakea Pond, a spring-fed estuary with many saltwater species to observe. Here is where you will find an ornate statue in the likeness of King Kamehameha off Bishop Drive. There are also two memorials, one in honor of Vietnam veterans and another to honor tsunami victims. The Wailoa Center, located off Pauahi Street, often features changing cultural displays.

The center is open Mon., Tues., Thurs., and Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m and Wed. noon-4:30 p.m. To reach the park, turn mauka onto Pauahi Street from Kamehameha Ave.
