Create an itinerary including Wahiawa Botanical Garden
The Wahiawa Botanical Garden, 27 acres (11 ha) is a botanical garden on a high plateau in central Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, United States, located between the Wai'anae and Ko'olau mountain ranges. It is one of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, and home to a collection of tropical flora requiring a relatively cool environment, with emphasis on native Hawaiian plants. It is nicknamed the "tropical jewel" of the Botanical Gardens. The Garden's site began in the 1920s, when the Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association leased land from the State of Hawaiʻi for experimental tree planting. Most of the Garden's large trees date from that era. The property was transferred to Honolulu in 1950, and opened as a botanical garden in 1957. It is open seven days a week, from 9am to 4 pm.

  • Very Beautiful! My kids and I met up with a friend and her kids and they ran through the paths exploring and enjoying the nature. They loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed it myself!! We all got bit up by some bugs though. Make sure you use bug spray prior. But otherwise the trees provide perfect shade and coolness on a hot day. Lovely.
  • Nice little botanical garden. Limited parking out front with a bridge that heads over to Cherry Blossom trees. The main area has no entrance fee and is a nice and calming place to take a stroll. The layout is quite nice for such a small area. If you decide to go down the paths it's a little steep so be wary if it has rained (flash flood area at bottom as well} as it could be quite slippery, I would NOT recommend going down if it's raining as there isn't that much to see even if the weather is nice. More than worth your time to visit and give it maybe 30 minutes.
