“A quiet peaceful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We met some friends at the Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens, and they gave us a tour of the gardens, shrines, and other displays. It has exhibits representing the immigrants from China, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, and Portgual, all of whom helped make up the current population of the island of Maui. It is a nice quiet place to relax, enjoy the birds, meditate, and get into the beauty of the gardens and of all the surroundings.

“Lovely spot to take a break or have a picnic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We spent an hour or so strolling the gardens, visiting the monuments and enjoying the landscaped grounds.
Interesting, informative and a wonderful way to honor those who have settled the island.

“Another great little surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

This park is a little odd. I didn't know what to expect at first. There are a number of monuments to various people who've settled in Hawaii. It was a little odd to see the Puerto Rico Monument next to a Japanese stone garden. But, then I saw the Peace Pole and realized it was basically a Peace Park. Lots of great monuments to commemorate the various ethnicities that make up Hawaii. There is also stream access here to the same stream that comes down from Iao Valley. Worth a 30 minutes top after seeing Iao Valley State Park.
