A great way to see the gardens and learn about the plants and trees is with the 4WD Segway tour they offer. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and we had a blast!

Admittedly, we ended up hear by mistake. I entered "Botanical Garden" in my GPS, and it routed me here instead of the Hawaiian Botanical Garden. I know nothing about the other park offerings, but the garden is a disaster.
