“Japanese Style Park and Garden in Hilo Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A large park in Hilo. Never seems crowded but used by joggers, walkers, picnic, and some events. When in Hilo Town we often take some food down to the park benches near the water and enjoy the outdoors.

“For Peaceful Contemplation or Jogging”

This lovely Japanese-style garden is repleat with ornamental bridges, obliques, statues, and Banyan trees. Paved walkways and jogging path along the waterside makes this a place for everyone to enjoy.

The park is well maintained and is a good place to walk around. It is definitely worth a visit to this tranquil park.

“Bland and unkept...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

This 'garden' is suppose to be the second largest Japanese garden in the US. The largest being in San Francisco. First, I've been to the garden in S.F. and this is no comparison. In fact, I find this garden to be bland and not well kept. It's a shame as it has the bay going for it as a backdrop. If you want to enjoy a simple walk around a park, it's ok. Otherwise, it's nothing special.
