  • This is one of the many free things to do on Oahu and it worthwhile. I do not think it would not hold anyone’s interest for more than an hour or two unless you really were interested in plants and...  more »
  • It was a nice walk down to the lake on a paved trail. Fun to see all the flora and fauna. It’s a secret for locals only. No charge for entry which is great.  more »
  • One of Oahu's most beautiful places! The garden is full of local plants, scenic views and opportunities to spend time in nature. Everywhere you look you get amazing views of the mountains. If you love nature and the beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, this is the place to go! One could easily spend an entire day strolling around the big garden. And the best thing about it is the fact that it's completely free! It's totally a must see when on Oahu.
  • No words to describe beauty of this place. Once you're inside it's a 360 degree beauty all around you. There is no entry fee and great place for exploring trees, birds and rejuvenate. Few tips - * Gate opens at 9am. Visiting then is better as less crowd and better views * Taking photos in entrance driveway is strictly prohibited and enforced by the guard on duty * If you go early, you can grab a fishing pole from the visitor center office * There is a small but beautiful art gallery behind the office. * Drive carefully when going in/out - there are lots of pedestrians
