Kakaako Waterfront Park
Kakaʻako Waterfront Park, also known as "Point Panic Park", is a public park in Kakaʻako, south of downtown Honolulu, just off Ala Moana Boulevard at the end of Cooke Street. It was opened in November 1992 on the site of a former municipal landfill and consists of 35 acres (140,000 m2) of grass-covered rolling hills adjacent to the ocean. There is no sandy beach at this location, and access to the ocean is by concrete stairs. The park has bathrooms, water fountains, free parking, picnic tables, an amphitheatre, pay telephones, paved jogging paths, and two popular surfing spots, "Point Panic" and "Flies".
Management of Kakaʻako Waterfront Park has been transferred to the Hawaiʻi Community Development Corporation.
The John A. Burns School of Medicine, part of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, is located inland and adjacent to the waterfront park.
A Memorial to the Ehime Maru Incident victims is built at the Kakaako Waterfront Park.
