Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, Hilo

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Take a break from Hawaii's busy tourist areas with a visit to Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, situated just southeast of downtown Hilo. The main feature of this 12 hectare (30 acre) park is an Edo-style Japanese garden, one of the largest such features outside Japan. Built in the early 1900s, the garden features several bridges, koi ponds, pagodas, statues, and a traditional Japanese teahouse. Adjacent to the park you’ll find a small picnic area locally known as the "Coconut Island," once the site of an ancient healing temple. Connected to the park by a footbridge, the island offers unobstructed views of downtown Hilo and its picturesque bay. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Liliuokalani Park and Gardens and many more Hilo attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Hilo trip itinerary builder.
