Quiet, serene gardens right next to Hilo Bay. Highly recommend for a stop when in Hilo or for a beach side picnic.

When you think Japanese landscape you think small enclosed area. This garden is filled with small ponds, carefully placed rocks, small walkways. Even the walkways are edged with rock so that it melds with the lawn. Wish it hadn;t been pouring rain because I would have liked to spend more time there

Right on Hilo Bay, beautiful photography of Mauna Kea is at your finger tips, as well as photos of the bay itself. Used by locals for walking, kerp to the left because... More

This park in Hilo is such a great place! I took my dog and we walked around the park, used the foot bridges and sat next to the large banyan trees. There's also some good snorkling near the park as well!
