We were here in Feb. 2015 and could go into the grove. We came back in Dec 2015 now there is a fence that says "Keep Out" huge bummer :-(

They don't really allow you into the grove itself due to the danger of falling coconuts...go figure. Great place for sunstes tho.

This was a wonderful little park to have our picnic we had tables and ocean breezes and no one to bother us.

Tranquil little spot along the road, great for photography and exploration, but do watch for falling coconuts. They can be lethal.

Neat to see. But you can no longer go in unless you have a permit so we had to look from the road. Would have been neat to be able to go inside and look around or read something more about its history. But it is still an impressive sight.

Beautiful coconut grove on the main highway west of Kaunakakai. It appears they are still harvesting coconuts as evidenced by the piles neatly arranged under the trees. One of the locals told us that Kamehameha V had a house in the coconut grove.

Not much to really see, we actually went past it several times as we did the island. If you have never seen coconuts on a tree, it is interesting.

Loved this park. Took lots of photos of the beautiful palm trees. Do respect the sign suggesting that you be aware of falling coconuts. I looked up occasionally just to be on the safe side.

You can't enter the park anymore, but you can drive down a road to the west of the park and take photos of tons and tons of palm trees and find some fallen coconuts on the ground.
