“Beautiful grounds, fine orchids, every tree imaginable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a beautiful spot, more a walk than a hike. It is a tree garden, with every tree that can grow in the tropics, many of them very old and huge. There is an orchid garden, an orchid pavilion, and another orchid display.

I come here at least once a season and always bring guests to it.

“Peaceful Place in the City... Sometimes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

A nice peaceful place to walk through during the week. Have been there on the weekend, and was surprised to see many families with out of control children. It's a garden, not a playground!

Enjoyed taking time out from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki to enjoy the very lush botanical gardens. Took the tour with Cindy which was very informative.

“Take a leisurely stroll in the woods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The trees here are spectacular. You'll probably not see anything like it anywhere. There are occasional concerts, but usually it's just a beautiful, quiet place to be with nature.
