Very pleasant place. Well laid out, good maps with clear instructions. Carefully tended. Interesting background as to why it was constructed in the first place.

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

I wouldn't say this is a must see attraction but if you're looking for a place to walk or just really love plants this place is for you. Most of the walkway is paved and there are signs in front of most of the plants describing what they are. There was also a staff member walking around and answering questions.... More

We live in Kaneohe where the garden is. It's a great place for a stroll, picnic, BBQ, family get together and camping. We've done all the above. They have free catch and release fishing with bamboo poles on the weekends, which is where we taught our grandkids how to fish. A lovely place. Recommend going to the visitor center and... More

This is really a device by the US corps of engineers to protect Kanihoe from floods. Lots of roads, parking spaces and picnic tables but just a lot of common tropical plants, almost no native vegetation pleasant for a walk.

Each time I visit family on Oahu I make a point to visit Ho'omaluhia. The Koolau mountain range is unrivaled in its beauty especially after a rain when the many waterfalls are running. This garden is more like a park with an amazing number of mature palms, plants and flowering exotic trees. If you love photography you might want to... More

This is a large park like area. There are places for people to camp out with permission. It opens at 9 and is free. There is a visitor center with restrooms. From there you can walk a short distance to the lake and view all of the beautiful flowers and trees. The lake is nice and there are lots of... More
