We saw this recommended on trip advisor and other websites so we gave it a try. Very worthwhile. We walked around the lake and along a couple of the trails. Good location, easy walking and lots to see. Not enough to warrant a return trip, but I'd recommend a stop if you are in the area. Park at the main... More

Been wanting to take my 5 yr old there to fish for awhile. It's just catch and release which is great for him. Bamboo poles with barbless hooks. Awesome. The one weekend we decide to go there was a fishing derby. He caught nothing and was disappointed. Plus the parking was far away and they didn't have enough staff telling... More

My sister and I stumbled upon this place while looking for activities in Kaneohe. We were pleasantly surprised! The grounds are beautiful and everything is free!!! When you drive in, park at the visitor center, pick up a map, and decide what you want to do...drive, walk, fish, etc. I recommend the paved path down to the lake as well... More

Wonderful park to stroll around for an hour or two. Magnificent trees where all kind of birds seem to have a great time. Many benches and picnic tables available, plenty of space and few visitors. The plants close to the visitor center are labeled and provided interesting facts about. There is less information as you move further away. The campground... More

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
