This beautiful park-like botanical garden is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon with the family. The large lawns surround Waokele Pond provide the perfect spot for a picnic or a leisurely stroll. The paved road, ample parking and restrooms throughout the park allow for a worry free afternoon. With many miles of trails to explore it's doubtful that you'll... More

We have been to this place twice in the last few weeks and have barely scratched the surface. The first time we just drove the main road and stopped at the visitor center. The second visit we focused on the loop with the Hawaiian plants. Several different loops have plants from different parts of the world. 2 downsides: 1. Mosquitos,... More

The gardens are lovely and a pleasant respite if you are circling the island. Not much in the way of restroom facilities, though.

The asphalt trail only goes part of the way, the grass can be soggy, wet and muddy. Not too much to see other than the man made lake with hungry yet friendly ducks and koi. Very pleasant place for a stroll, take an umbrella!

We just made a quick stop on our way through but a very nice County Park. Admission is free and they even allow camping. There are hiking trails all througj the park. Worth a quick stop or an all day excursion.

Grab a picnic or a loaf of bread (if you want to fish catch & release), some mosquito repellent, and a rain poncho (just in case), and head out into the most beautiful parklike botanical garden you could imagine. The grounds are stunning, massive, and have lots and lots of hidden little trails and benches. The camping is amazing, but... More

Nice Gardens, and the price was right (free). Perfect for an hour or two break if you are in the area. Not to be compared with the more expensive Waimea.

Well cared-for city park. A beautiful place to spend some time. Lots of trails around the reservoir and many well-labeled tropical plants.

This place is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for some peace and quiet. It has a lot of plant life, which is expected from a botanical garden. Free parking and no fee to explore the grounds. Great place to take some pictures and enjoy some bird watching. When it rains, it gets quite muddy as actual gravel... More

This is the antithesis of tropical beach beauty. This is a lush mountainside retreat with a large reservoir pond and well maintained grounds with spots to picnic and relax. There are birds and fowl to keep an eye out for, as well as lots of plants and trees with informative ID signs for the average botanist to study. It's often... More
