Now the largest banyan tree in all of Hawaii, the giant trunk and its aerial root system cover nearly 2,700 sq m (29,000 sq ft) of the park.

  • Yes, it's just a tree, shady, cool and huge, but it is a unique experience. Main Street can be crowded and full of those who find thrills in shopping. So if you need to sit and wait, do it here. You c...  more »

  • This is a pretty park that serves as a meeting place for everyone. Crafts are sold under the enormous branches of a 140 year old banyan tree; serious performers entertain locals and tourists. There is a paid parking lot across the street if you need quick parking. It's $7 an hour.
  • Beautiful spot. I couldn’t believe it was just one tree at first! The city did a great job turning it into a park for all to enjoy day and night while preserving the tree forever. We took an evening stroll here after dinner one night.
  • Cool shops around. Very interesting to see such a cool Banyan tree. Worth checking out. The old Lahaina courthouse and museum has some really interesting artifacts.
  • An amazing tree covers the whole park. I've never been anywhere else like it. It's a comfortable shady spot in the middle of the day, and sometimes they have art markets and live music.
  • Parking is tight if you are planning to spend some time in downtown. Enter Dickenson Rd from Front st. make a first left public parking is free, there are other paid options. Downtown Lahaina is great for food and gift shops.
