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.

This garden, or arboretum, is a large and beautiful tract of land nestled essentially under a highway and along the base of some beautiful volcanic mountains. The plantings are large and in a park-style setting. Easy car access then walk the trails for each planting zone. If I lived near here this would be a favorite park area, especially since... More

Hawaii has much more than beaches. We spent some time walking the trails and visiting the botanical gardens and arboretums and found some amazing places and unbelievable nature on display. Hoomaluhia is a quiet, sprawling park centered around a lake on the east side of Oahu. The setting is amazing with sheer mountains rising all around. The trails are vaguely... More

My wife and I walk this park every day. It is unknown to many, but a beautiful place to walk, hike, and camp in a safe environment. There is catch and release fishing on Saturday & Sunday's for the kids. Worth a visit.

This is a free botanical gardens in the Kaneohe area. It's a bit tricky to see the sign so not a bad idea to use a GPS so you make the turn. As you drive in, there is sometimes a guard but he waves you on. On your left as you drive in is a parking area and visitor center.... More

Tucked away in a neighborhood in Kaneohe is Hoomaluhia Botanical Gardens. It's hard to find the first time but after that, you'll see the signs and the arrows and drive right in. There are paved roads and large areas of green grass, trees, and flowering plants. You can wander around and in the process get quite a good hike, and... More
