Dog Friendly Parks on Oahu, Hawaii

Dog Friendly Parks on Oahu, Hawaii

Where Can I Walk My Dog in Waikiki?

Leashed dogs are welcome on county sidewalks. However, store and mall-front areas are often private property. The oceanfront walkway from Queen’s Beach to the Waikiki Aquarium does not allow pets as its county park property so best to remain on the Kalakaua Ave roadside sidewalk. Leashed dogs are welcomed around Kapiolani Parks perimeter but not in the park.

Below are names and locations of dog parks that allow off-leash dogs, leashed dogs, and county permitted parks.
