Don Ho Park in Waikiki
Formerly known as Beach Walk Triangle Park

The the small triangle park at the corner of Beach Walk Avenue and Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki was formerly known as Beach Walk Park, but in May of 2007 the city and county of Honolulu officially renamed it "Don Ho Park" to honor singer Don Ho, who died of heart related problems on April 14, 2007 at the age of 76.

Statue of Don Ho to Be Erected in Waikiki Park
An event called the Don Ho Memorial Golf Tournamant was held on August 13, 2007 (Don Ho's birthday) to raise funding for a memorial statue of Don Ho sitting at his electric organ and a plaque to mount on the statue. The statue will be located at Don Ho Park, the new name of the triangle point of Kalakaua and Beachwalk Avenues. When the statue is completed it is expected that visitors will be able to take pictures of each other sitting on the piano bench next to Don Ho.
