“Banyan Tree Park”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a small park under one of the largesr banyan trees, I think, in the world (planted 1873) So it was very pleasant and shady. We went on Sunday, and the local pensioners' club were singing Hawaiian songs and hula, which was lovely, and there was a display of stalls with art, jewellery and other locally made artefacts. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

“Eh - not as interesting as it seemed in guidebooks”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

It's in the middle of a busy street and buildings around it. The trees are cool, but I wouldn't make a special trip to see this tree park. If you're downtown Lahaina and nearby, I guess it wouldn't hurt to stop by. Lots of people were hanging out and a few homeless looking people, too.

“Unreal”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

It's a tree! A beautiful massive tree! I was amazed at how far the branches reached out and then dropped roots to the ground. You must visit this tree... and it's free! I wish I had the time to sit under the tree for a picnic... I will next time.

“Something you can do for free in Lahaina”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The historic Banyan Tree in Lahaina, next to the old courthouse, is a must see when visiting. This tree literally covers a city block, with lots of branches that over time have dropped down and rooted into their own stumps. Planted back in the days when Lahaina was a whaling port, it has provided shade for generations. You can join the millions who have posed under it.

The nearby old courthouse museum is also free, and a nice way to spend an hour. This tree is located across the street from the Pioneer Inn, which doesn't look it, but has great food in their restaurant. The docks where you get most excursion boats and the ferries are there too.

When the Banyan Tree is full of birds all chirping at the same time, it's quite an experience, usually at sunset. Again, parking is usually an problem, but there are several pay lots nearby. Don't test a 2 hour zone as the cops in Lahaina make tons of money for the local economy enforcing parking violations!
