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.Add Wahiawa Botanical Garden to your Wahiawa travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Wahiawa trip itinerary site.
Wahiawa Botanical Garden reviews
I liked this garden. It is small and some parts are run down but had some really cool features. If you are in Wahiawa, definitely stop. more »
A lot of sights and sounds in a botanical garden that isn't overwhelming. Free admission and free parking, its definitely worth your time to take a brief stroll and take in all the beauty. more »
This is a kid friendly (stroller friendly) nature hike. The place is well maintained and well kept. There are variety of trees, plants and flowers that are labeled. There is a free map that you can get near the entrance. Overall a great experience.
Very Quaint Garden. Be sure to wear walking shoes...the lower garden level is not paved. The upper level is paved and accessible. Lots of photo opportunities and pretty flowers. The park guide at the information desk was very helpful and super sweet! Grab a map and a bird checklist and enjoy!
