What a view, plus there are Moas!

We had such a fun picnic lunch here with a fabulous view of both sides of Maui from Wailea/Kihei to the left and Kahului to the right. The grounds are very well maintained, and... read more

We had such a fun picnic lunch here with a fabulous view of both sides of Maui from Wailea/Kihei to the left and Kahului to the right. The grounds are very well maintained, and the roosters/chickens kept us entertained as well. At 3000 feet the air is definitely cooler and felt so good. So, if you are going to be... More

You cannot beat the views of Central Maui and the islands to the south of Maui from this park. It is a simple park, no frills except some grills. Parking is above, and if you pass it on your left, just take the next left. You will make it. I attended a wedding there, and just as the parson pronounced... More

Just your local, suburban park with beautiful views of the valley! If you're driving down the Kula Highway and want to stop off for a rest break or picnic lunch, this is a lovely place to do it. There's a bathroom (which was unusually clean and well maintained), a few picnic tables and benches and a gazebo too. Plenty of... More

This is just a little local park in Kula but it has a spectacular view of the valley of Maui. There are picnic tables and a restroom. Since it is in Kula it is sometimes a bit chilly so take a sweater or something with you. As a bonus the Kula Country Farms local "farmers market" is practically across the... More

We stopped to watch the Sunset from this little slanted park, and the view of 2 coasts is absolutely amazing! The park is lined with colorful flowers and there is a simple, but clean bathroom facility. It's right off the main road, and there was ample parking. Kind of reminiscent of a 'Lovers Lane" with some teenage couples in the... More

I like this park it is clean and quiet.I go here to sketch and get my zen on.Many local families enjoy picnics here & local workers stop to have their lunches and break time.The air is so clean.Sometimes it rains but other days the sun is out.

We were to meet our party at the Park after they biked down the volcano on skyline trail on mountain bikes but instead we both independently found this neat country market with organic produce and locally made bakery items. We bought fruit and goodies and enjoyed them on the picnic table (several available) and there is a kid's garden with... More
