Occupying the site of an old fort, spans just under 1 hectare (2 acres) and contains several heritage sites on the  self-guided trail through the town's historical district.

  • We discovered this during a stroll. Under this tree system there were plenty of crafters and artists set up. We were told that the Banyan tree was a gift from India. You see these along the coastline....  more »
  • Cute little Sunday market with local art and jewelry makes for a fun stop. Unfortunately a lot of "rough" looking people make you want to keep kids close by.  more »
  • Banyan Tree Park is a must, even if you only have 10 minutes! Your kids will have difficulty grasping that this is actually one tree.  more »

  • This place is always amazing with the Banyan tree! Watch out for homeless people wanting to take your photo, only downside. Close to shops and our favorite Bad-Ass Coffee company. Love this place!
  • Very cool place. When we came by there were local artists displaying their work. The tree is very impressive.
  • One of the best places in Maui. The tree is huge spread across a big lot. There are lots of restaurants around, lot of photos to sell and other water sports activities. There is a public parking lot near by but it's usually full. You may have to park little farther or use paid parking.
  • We enjoyed the Banyan tree, square. Its a great place to set and relax. I had never seen one before, so the tree was very interesting to see and learn about. The history of the area is interesting to learn about. The local people are friendly.
  • amazing tree and nice to walk through when the Friday night art show is on. A nice park to people watch too.
