If you like tropical plants this is the place. The immaculate gardens are run by the county and is free. Take a picnic lunch as there are several shady spots with restrooms and tables nearby. The visitor center is also worthy of a stop. The drive through the park and the trails may take anywhere from one to three hours.... More

Recently went here for lunch with my mother in law while she was visiting. We hiked around for around 3-4 hours. There are lots of interesting trees, bushes, plants and flowers to see here from diffferent areas of the world. But.... there are alot of wild pigs here. They seemed to be afraid of us but my mother in law... More

Very lush tropical gardens with a stunning mountain backdrop. Free. Easy parking. We always discover some amazing tree or flower when we come here. And it's big-we haven't seen it all yet!

If you are looking for a nice place for a relaxing and a break from the beach in Kailua, this botanical garden is a close alternative. Beautifully located at the foot of the mountain range, it is a well kept, interesting botanical garden. You can walk down to the lake and then around the garden itself. It mostly focuses on... More

As other reviewers mention, this is an arboretum with a wonderful collection of tropical trees, well labelled. The gardens are divided into several sections and it's a long, roadside walk between them. However, there is overnight camping, and it's a beautiful place.

A very nice visitor center (and geocache). We walked down to the lake and feed the ducks, a goose, assorted other little birds, fish, and three mongoose. What fun!

We went as soon as the garden opened, which was wonderful. The staff in the visitor center were incredibly friendly and amazingly helpful -- we had wanted to check out some waterfalls, but we were told that there would really only be tiny falls after a big rain and gave us a list of places to check out and maps...

This is a good place to view tropical plants, with good labeling, and the 360 degree panorama from the viewpoint is well worth the short climb up.

This is a large garden or park with many different trees on display. Quiet and without crowds, we spent an hour or so here enjoying the different variety on display. Beware the closing times otherwise you may end up leaving earlier than anticipated. No entrance fee.
