Let's say you're riding a bike on Kalākaua Ave, away from central Waikiki and towards Diamond Head; you might notice the "Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial" on the ocean side of the street, across from Kapi'olani Regional Park.)

The Waikiki Natatorium War Memorial is a war memorial in Honolulu. It was built in the form of an ocean water public swimming pool. The natatorium was built as living memorial dedicated to "the men and women of Hawaii who served during the great war".

It was completed in 1927. It has been closed to the public since 1979. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

A draft study in 2018-2019 estimated that it would take around $26 million to renovate the memorial. Money was allocated. Work started--but stopped in 2001 because of an opposition group. Things have been at a standstill since. (I only mention this in case you wonder why they haven't "done anything".)

Nowadays, there's a lot of fencing to prevent the public from entering and getting injured.

I wouldn't make a special trip to visit this site. But when I am on a bike ride in Waikiki, I do swing by. You can take nice close-up pictures of the architectural features. But in its current state, it's a bit unimpressive.

At this time, it seems that the ocean is taking its toll and wants to claim it.

It’s a national disgrace that a war memorial should be in this dilapidated condition. Why the Hawaiian people have let this happen is beyond me

On peut apprécier les extérieurs, l'arc de triomphe et les plaques commémoratives, en se baladant le long de Kalakaua Avenue.

ベアフットビーチカフェへ行ったあと、散歩していたら見つけました。以前にテレビで見たことがあり、機会があれば行きたいと思っていた場所でした。
歴史を感じるには良い場所でした。ここから、北側の公園からのダイアモンドヘッドの眺めが最高でした。

Cool to see if you're already there. Really cool building. We saw it while we were at the aquarium so we swung by and took a look. Public washrooms attached to it which is nice.

アロハ Eスクーターのツアーは、ガイドと一緒に電動スクーターでダイアモンドヘッドの景観の良い所を廻り、最後にアサイボウルを食べたり、このワイキキ ウォーメモリアルでサンセットを楽しんだりできます。

A non profit is trying to renovate this and they have their work cut out for them. Currently it is NOT a tourist destination but a place for the homeless to shower and use the bathrooms. GOOD LUCK TO YOU RENOVATORS.

A slice of art deco history that is in dire need of some serious restoration work. The front has had some patching but the pool deck and walls are literally falling to pieces and it is likely to get worse when you look at how long it takes anything to be done on Oahu. Worth a look as you walk past but don't go out of your way. We chatted to a local and he told us it was sad that there wasn't even a plan underway to fix the pool because of it's historical significance

The site has some information on how the site once was an important facility. But it is largely chained off and not very accessible. Rather sad.

This is an interesting War Memorial of World War 1, but it was closed off and looked to be in significant disrepair. And surprisingly it has a plaque on it giving thanks for people leading the restoration in 2000. Hard to believe it was actually restored in 2000 given the state it is in now. It was mostly blocked off due to safety concerns (I would guess). The parking lot was being used by folks going to the beach, so I guess it was serving some purpose.
