Arrive when the park opens to have more private time in the park. More crowds of people were arriving about 2 hours after the park opened. When we arrived, we were given a map and guide to the birds of the gardens. Surprisingly, my kids...More

It was an easy and beautiful hike. It’s paved and not slippery for those who may be concerned. I am 6 month pregnant and did it together with my husband and 6 yo. It took longer than others but we were at our own pace....More

This is a very crowded attraction, even on an off day (like the Monday when we went). Parking can be an issue. It runs about $16 per person for a no-frills pass. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to the falls and there is...More

The park is home to a spectacular botanical collection. This 150-acre site contains more than 5,000 species of tropical and subtropical plants, including native and endangered Hawaiian plants. We took a self-guided walking tour through the garden. We walked through a botanical wealth of typical...More
