Gardens are adjacent to Chinatown, so accessible by bus from Waikiki Beach. Not manacured gardens, or prolifically full of tropical pants but a very relaxing visit. It’s around 15 acres in the middle of Honolulu which is pretty amazing.

This is the place to get away from everything right in the middle of town. The grounds are wonderful to walk around. You can bring your watercolors and sketch pad and work to your hearts content. I like to go here by myself.

Very convenient location relative to Waikiki. Small botanical garden easily walkable in 1 1/2-2 hours at a leisurely pace. Specimens very well marked (trees, plants, flowering bushes) which was nice. Very nominal admission fee. Well worth the visit! Restrooms on sight.

This place is relatively small, but packed with lovely plants, gardens, and displays. Go here to see the most for the least amount of walking.

I promised my wife that we would see orchids, but we ended up finding so much more! The variety of plants, trees, and flowers was stunning and far beyond what we were prepared to find, especially in the heart of Honolulu. And the Butterfly Garden...More

Well curated park in the city. It has a nice map and several benches inside for you to rest. It's not huge but it's laid out in such a way that the trails curve around and make you think the place is bigger. There is...More

Nice arboretum and botanical garden in downtown Honolulu. Large trees, notably the African Baobab and the giant Quiapo tree from South America.

A beautiful garden to visit full of many different trees, look for the Cannonball tree if you go. Brochure describes individual plants and trees that are numbered and easy to see. Stunning orchids and well worth the five dollar entry.

If you have the time to take a leisurely stroll and love viewing the diversity of plant life in the tropics then make Foster Botanical Gardens one of your stops.

Nice, convenient tour around the garden and conservatory. Beautiful collection right in town. Good option for gorgeous flowers and interesting plants that you can see in an easy hour with not too much walking and free parking. Orchids and Pink Pineapples a must see!
