Royal Garden at Waikiki sits just down 'Olohana Street to the largest parks in the main Waikiki area- Ainahau Triangle and Fort DeRussy Beach Park. These parks feature sprawling, flat green lawns that are popular for picnicking, exercising outdoors, playing with pets, and spending time with friends and family. Plus, these parks are lined with trees that provide cool shade if the Hawaiian sun becomes too intense for you or your pets.
