“Amazing tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

The park is covered by one Banyan tree going on 200 years old. It is an amazing tree to see. A very unusual musician blowing (for tips) on what appears to be a 10' tree branch instrument was entertaining.

“If your here to see the tree, you're in the right place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Read the wiki page about this tree in Lahaina Maui. Learn a little about Banyan trees and what significance they have to many cultures. The tree in this park is magnificent. Truly, it can't be believed! It's a little sad too, that you almost feel its claustrophobia and how it's been used and abused. I'm not even a tree hugger, but this poor tree has been around for about 130 years and it just wants a little peace and quiet sometimes. The Myna birds...they never shut up. Go after dark for the effect...
I don't know what else to say, but don't forget to see the tree on your trip to Front street in Lahaina.

“Amazing Banyan Tree!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

We've never seen anything like this. One tree that has taken root in so many places it fills the whole park! The photo ops just never stopped. This one is free, folks--just wander around and be amazed!

“Amazing to see a tree this big! Spectacular.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

You can stroll under the tree for a long time in wonder of it all. We visited the old Courthouse on same grounds with lots of history of the plantation era and WWII. We love the history of it all!! Of course you are just across the street from many stores and restaurants and the harbor.

“Nice place to rest on a hot day!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Fascinating place in the middle of Lahaina. The tree is someting real special to Watch.
The place is also a cool and shady place to rest on a hot day, located in a central place in the pittoreque city or Lahaina.
