Subject to much-anticipated renovations, this grand, outdoor pool opened in 1927 as a tribute to Hawaii's residents who died during WWI. An impressive memorial arch leads into the facility, which features an enormous, saltwater pool and bleachers running alongside. In its heyday, it was frequented by Duke Kahanamoku, Buster Crabbe, and Johnny Weissmuller, and many area children learned to swim in the pool's confines. While renovation plans are being debated, the facility remains closed.
