My family (Mom, Dad, and Kids 10 & 8) stopped here on our way to the North Shore. Am I ever glad we did. Such a beautiful and peaceful place! There are many meandering paths to follow, and those that go down into the 'rain forest' area leave you feeling like you're not in a city any longer.

They have nice facilities, helpful staff, and a very diverse selection of plants and things to see. The fact that it's all free really puts it over the top for me. I could have paid a small fee and not have felt it was unjustified.

The kids enjoyed 'exploring' the many well marked paths. Do be aware that several of them are quite steep, and could be slippery when wet. We had no issues, but I did have to get the kids to slow down for fear of falls. Just a mild warning for what was a wonderful experience.

If you're passing through Wahiawa, I would not miss this gem.

The garden is so peaceful, free to go in, and serene. Many local weddings take place here, or at least have their pictures taken with the hundreds of gorgeous flowers and ravine in this beautiful country garden. Make sure to cover yourself with mosquito repellant! they love new blood!

This wasn't the most colorful garden I've ever been to but it was very peaceful and there was a pretty good variety of trees. I went exploring a little and found the end of the path to the east. It's kind of cool if you are feeling a bit adventurous. If you are in Wahiawa with nothing to do hit up the gardens. It's free!

there was not a soul around when we entered the park at 1 on Dec 15th, strolled through the main terrace with its huge trees and then hiked through the unpaved interior...you definitely need a mosquito repellant here... the huge trees with aerial roots were awesome and though this garden was a little rustic and less picturesque than other botanical gardens in Oahu, it has its own charm and we loved the couple of hours we spent here
