Swings are arguably the most coveted spot at the park. Yet, we continuously hear from caregivers that playgrounds with swings are hard to come by on O‘ahu. So, we assume you have also noticed that most of the island’s playgrounds are void of this fan-favorite attraction. Or, maybe you’ve even witnessed the removal of swings at your neighborhood parks over the years, whether it be because they were deemed unsafe or, perhaps, too difficult to maintain.

The good news is that there are still a few places across the island where kids can feel like they are flying, learn to pump their legs, and live childhood to the fullest. We spoke with Punahele Crowell, Parks Grounds Improvement Supervisor with the City & County of Honolulu, to get an update. Check out our list of playgrounds with swings on O‘ahu below and dive into the interactive Google Map to find the ones nearest you. If we’ve missed any swings in your neighborhood, feel free to message HONOLULU Family’s Editor at, so we can add to the list for all to enjoy!
