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. The star attraction of the park is a banyan tree, planted here in 1873 to mark the 50th anniversary of the first American Protestant mission in Lahaina. 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. Native to India, this banyan is one of 60 types of fig trees currently found on the islands of Hawaii.  Put Lahaina Banyan Court at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lahaina route planning app .

  • Small park full of banyan trees to seek shelter from the heat and enjoy a lunch picnic or shaved ice.  more »
  • The Banyan Tree Park is a good place to get some shade and sit for a few to relax or eat some shave ice from a nearby establishment. The tree is huge and fascinating.  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.
