  • I grew up on the windward side of Oahu. Back in the 60's this beautiful part of Kaneohe was not accessible to most people. mostly pig hunters and locals who knew where the trailheads were could experi...  more »
  • A drive through this garden is like stepping back in time to the way all the land used to look in old Hawaii. Speed limit is very slow on purpose to allow you to see the scenery as well as to protect ...  more »

  • Lots of signage on the trees, but there is no clearly appropriate way to walk through the park's various sections or even get to some of the trees. It's as if you're supposed to drive from parking lot to parking lot, and walk off trail. The map doesn't help. Camping area is a nice if odd touch. Why does it close at 4?
  • Beautiful sort of a tour at your own pace and leisure. Confusing at first because at the very front entrance is parking. Nobody at the gate to let you know its okay to drive the i guess 2 miles in for additional parking near the actual gardens. Other thank that its beautiful information markers were in place. There is a small "art" gallery on site as well as places for classes or informative lessons. It is free as well as parking. There is a big lake on site with lots of animals. The gardens are very big and a great place to relax. Cold water is provided by fountain at building information center on site as well as bathrooms!
  • Beautiful and well maintained grounds. Completely free to visit and partake. A nice lake in the center of the property is home to a large flock of ducks. If you have little ones or just enjoy ducks, make sure to bring something to feed to them! Crowds were not large for the Friday afternoon we visited. Interpretive signs aplenty describing the foliage and trees. Maintained restrooms, a picnic pavilion, and benches galore make this a hands down place to recommend if you’re looking to enjoy the beauty of nature.
  • Lovely view and scenery! Bring bread if you wanna feed the birds at the lake...the large population of koi fishes will wait and try to snatch thrown bread too. Great mountain views all around. They have a few picnic tables at each viewpoint, so bring a lunch and enjoy. I also spotted a mongoose, a few boars (deep in the areas), and a lot of variety of birds. Wear mosquito repellant!!!!
  • Pretty and very lush green botanical garden. They have huge lake with lots of fish and ducks. Bring loaf of bread and feed the fish and ducks, it's fun!
