Fun Kona Destinations: Kamakana Playground (Higashihara Park)

Kamakana playground is a fun destination for kids in the Kailua-Kona area on the Big Island. The playground is located south of Kailua town on the right side of the highway before the town of Captain Cook.  I bring my three year old and one 1/2 year old here about once a week.  

With plenty of slides, swings, and play equipment, Kamakana is never too crowded.  There is a cute toddler area for the little ones and a larger park for bigger kids.  Unique and artsy heritage-themed details like colorful tribal carvings on park walls, a replica hawaiian canoe, and picnic tables shaped like the islands make this place special.

    The park is not only for kids.  There are tennis courts, and adult picnic areas down the hill from the playground.  The ocean is visible through the trees - a nice backdrop when pushing kids on the swings.

My kids always leave kicking and screaming.  Have fun!

The playground is located in the Captain Cook/Kealakekua area at Higashihara Park.
