Kids to Parks Day

DLNR State Parks and Pacific Historic Parks are hosting the annual Kids to Parks Day event at Lēʻahi, Diamond Head State Monument on May 18th, 2024 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

This year marks the 14th anniversary of Kids to Parks Day, a day of outdoor exploration at local, state, and national parks across the states. While discovering and exploring our parks, keiki learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, STEM, and the cultural history of our parks and its unique treasures. Always hosted on the third Saturday of May, Kids to Parks Day encourages keiki and their ʻohana to get outside and create their own adventure at local park events and programs.
