This botanical garden is something you can drive through and enjoy the beauty from your car, but it also has many walking trails as well as plenty of restrooms for those who want to spend more time. We were with someone who has difficulty walking so it was nice to be able to drive through and see so much.

Very unexpected so close to Honolulu. Layout gives the option of driving slowly through or walking from garden to garden. So many birds!! Wear sturdy shoes if you really want to explore. Be on the lookout for pedestrians and parents with strollers. Climb to lookout is steep, but view makes up for it.

This park is in a very natural state, and many plants are marked with their botanical and common names. Set against the majestic mountains below the Pali Lookout on the Windward side of Oahu, morning light is perfect for photography. Temperatures at that time of day are also more tolerable for a nice leisurely stroll without the distraction of city... More

Had a few hours to kill before our flight, so we drove up to the botanical gardens and it was very well worth it. Looks like they could have made the Jurassic Park movies there. Wasn't that crowded even on a nice Saturday afternoon. Also wasn't too windy whereas all over the rest of the island, it was 25 mph... More

Botanical gardens in Hawaii are a must see for vacationers, and this place was lovely!. We were in the gardens for a wedding, the views were amazing and we have lots of gorgeous pictures to remember the special day.

We come here at least once a month. So much to see and do. Great for kids, on the weekends they offer free fishing..of course you can't take or eat the fish..it's nice that it's FREE! If fishing isn't your thing..no worries. Take a a nice nature walk or pack a picnic lunch. There's so many plants and trees from... More

Visited in late September and unfortunately the paths were muddy and green grass areas were wet. There were very few flowers blooming. The lady in the information center was very helpful.

We took our two kids (2 & 1 yrs) and had a great time. We walked to the lake, but once you got off the paved path, it was very muddy which we weren't expecting, so wear shoes that can get dirty. Fishing was closed this weekend, so call ahead before going. We were able to feed the ducks and... More
