I live here in Kaneohe and always love visiting this place! A slice of heaven in - oh umm PARADISE! There's a lake, an interpretive center and LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL FLORA! Not much in the wild animal department but this IS Hawaii!

Unbelievably beautiful! Went on a run through this and felt like I was in a different world. So many different plants and types. How often do you get to run/walk by guava, pineapples, bananas, cocnuts, and so many other fruits. And the mountains are awe inspiring.

We wanted to see some more of the island, and find something to do that was free/cheap. This was perfect! It's a beautiful, interesting place. My one year old loved the ducks. We recently moved to the island, so we are trying to see and do all of the many things Oahu has (on a budget!) This was nice. Definitely... More

Beautifully-kept grounds of this large botanical garden are located in a natural setting at the base of the Ko'olau mountain range. Native trees and plants are everywhere, and are healthy and well-kept thanks to donations from public and private donors. Plants are labelled clearly, and maps of this garden are available about halfway up the road at the visitor center.... More

This is an attraction that can work for vigorous hikers or the elderly or handicapped. A stop at the visitor center provides a map with clearly marked out botanical areas and hiking trails. There are tables for lunch in some areas and convenient parking and restrooms. For the non-hikers, you can take a scenic drive through the whole gardens. An... More

My wife and I visited here on a recent trip to Oahu. This garden is a hidden gem. It has several distinct areas on the shore of a beautiful lake each with unique gardens from different areas of Hawaii and Asia. You can also tent camp here in one of the special garden areas with proper permits. The lake shore... More

You'll get lost in the beauty and peaceful of this place! Bring your camera and discover something new around every corner of this lush garden! The birds will thrill you with their calls and the gentle winds though the trees will call you to soul! Plan to stay for awhile and bring a blanket to lay down under a tree!... More

There are not too many places this secluded on the north shore of Oahu. We only found this garden because we made a wrong turn and got lost. This may be the most peaceful spot on the island. The garden is gorgeous and well maintained. You will feel like you have the entire island to yourself.

OVERVIEW: My husband and I found the botanical gardens while we were lost and trying to find our way back into Honolulu. We were very glad we did, because it was such a beautiful day for a walk and a great location to spend some time photographing. ATMOSPHERE: The gardens were created as a reservoir to collect rain waters during... More

We stumbled on this garden because we were in the area and saw signs - we hadn't seen it mentioned in any of the Oahu literature. It is so lush and green! And to make it even better, it is free. There is a Visitor's Center where an employee gave us a map and told us about the walk to... More
