I enjoyed a past visit here and just found out it has been closed (and is for sale?). I hope there will be local efforts to reopen it. The Greenwells were/are a prominent family with historic presence in the Kona area, and you can visit their coffee farm.

It is a lovely place and a tribute to the positive influence of the Greenwell family on the Big Island.The reason for its closure is uncertain and no announcement has been made for a reopening.

THEY HAD TO CLOSE IT DOWN for now. Various reasons but the building is still there and you can view some of the grounds. There is a farmers market on Sunday and Fridays with lots of parking. Come by, use the clean restrooms and take a view of the spot. Maybe send a note to Greenwell and ask that they consider opening it up again.

There is no word on when it will re open, it is a tragic loss to the island - shut indefinitely. I hope that the locals - many of whom are wealthy Americans from the mainland who have retired here or have second homes here - will pool together and preserve this valuable resource of Hawaii's indigenous plants and trees. Sad that it had to close.

The Garden has a collection of nerly all of the banana varieties which were discovered and bred by the prehistoric Hawaiian farmers. There are other native (endemic, found only in Hawaii and nowhere else in the world) plants and Polynesian introduced ("canoe plants," so-called because they were brought to Hawaii by the Polynesian voyaging discoverers after more than a month at sea.
Excellent collection, but the garden is now closed (Jan. 31, 2016) because the owner, the Bishop Museum, is short of operating funds.

We had so been looking forward to touring this garden and were crushed to see it closed. Very sad to have such a resource deteriorating and unavailable any more.

There is a wonderful farmers market on Saturday right next to this garden. I had read the garden was closing on Jan 31 and sincerely hope funding is found to keep it going. We enjoyed our walk around it along with history and plant names. Saw some neat new birds, too.

This seems to be a garden-in-progress. There are exhibits of local climate zone plants, but it's super-low key at this point with some signs still needing to be placed to make it clear to the visitor who knows zero what is what.
