This garden was wonderful. The backdrop of the mountains made this a stunning site. Use mosquito repellent because we got bitten horribly but the identification of the plants and what they have made it worth it. Great walk.

This is a lovely garden. You need a car to get here and there is a long road to drive through the gardens too far to walk. Also it shuts at 4pm so don't go too late. Not much in the way of tropical flowers but lots of lush tropical plants. Loved the views of the mountains.

Took picnic lunch from Huli Huli Mikes , (think that is name), food cart to garden. Picnic tables throughout in beautiful settings from jungle garden to large lake with many ducks and other birds. You know you are in Hawaii, in a simpler time. Bridges to cross, mongoose to see, plentiful Koi. It was a perfect time in Paradise.

My husband and I only had a few hours to enjoy the beautiful and scenic botanical gardens. Next time, we will go and spend a day among those exquisite native trees and plants.

Tanya & Myles Umeda My husband and I were both born and raised here on the island Oahu. As locals, this was our very first time here and we were blown away by the serenity and beauty that surrounded us during our walk. It reminded us both, of how lucky we are to live in Hawaii. As we walked in,... More

Words cannot convey how beautiful, peaceful and breathtaking this garden is. As we drove the course we were continually surprised by the beautiful scenery. I wish I could say more; however, as stated previously words cannot describe what I saw. Please add this to your list of things to do while in Hawaii. Several locals were walking the trail, so...

Our family visited this area many times. We love it. We attended a wedding there and enjoyed lunch at the many picnic areas. They have nice camping grounds as well. They have hot water showers and nice clean facilities. .

A huge botanical garden nestled in a bowl below astounding weathered basalt cliffs that act as a backdrop. You can sometimes see high waterfalls after heavy rain streaming down the many gullies. The gardens are well designed and labelled and are laid out so that you can drive around, park and walk down the many tracks.

The Byodo-In Temple is located at the foot of the Ko'olau Mountains in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. The grounds are lushly landscaped and are home to lots of peacocks and other birds. There is a large reflecting pond and lots of small waterfalls. There are hundreds of beautiful Japanese koi carp swimming in the waterways. Some of... More
