Kamalani Playground Description
Wooden turrets; a twisty tube slide with a picture of lava flowing from the top; tiled cement benches with inlaid sharks, fish, and octopus; kid-eye signs in Hawaiian and English; and lots of swinging bridges to cross all make the community-built Kamalani Playground a destination spot for local and visiting families. Kids can play hide-and-go-seek among the ironwood trees on the expansive lawns, duck through rock caves, climb on the chains course, or head across the street to the beach to go for a dip in the ocean.
Toddlers & Pre-K: There's tic-tac-toe on turning cement blocks, a "mirror" to make funny faces in, and plenty of pint-sized climbing structures for toddlers and preschoolers.
School-Age Kids: Can play songs (from "Mary Had a Little Lamb" to Hawaiian lullabies) on numbered musical pipes — the notes are etched into the wood above.
- Have a drink. There's a water fountain here to rehydrate.
- Bring a towel and sunscreen. Even if you come for the playground, chances are your kids will want to head to the shoreline.
- Lots of free parking. You can come any time of day and find a space.
