Stopped here on a whim on our way to dinner and I'm so glad we did. It's a beautiful park, very spacious but also cozy at the same time. Lots of areas to walk around and talk or just think. Many beautiful photo ops -...More

We've always enjoyed going to this park. It has several ponds, is nicely landscaped and a great place to sit and meditate. Nice little trek off Banyan Drive.

My family and I have visited this park over the past 50 years and it is still beautiful and well maintained.

This garden is a nice walk with beautiful surroundings. There is parking and then easy access to the path to start walking and seeing the different things. There are bridges to walk over and fish to see as well as bamboo trees.

This is a great park to do a stroll along the water at dusk and then to sit and watch the sunset over Hilo. Not really crowded on a Wednesday evening. A good mix of tourists and locals. The sunset views are worth the visit!

Lovely park on the bayfront, lots of places to wander or just sit and watch the world go by. The park has an Asian feel, pretty but not overdone statuary, a pretty small lake easily circled, and it is scrupulously clean and beautifully maintained.

Wonderful Japanese style gardens in Hilo on the water with a beautiful view on the snow capped mountains. Peaceful walk for an 1-2 hours, remember you are on vacation. Lot!s of ponds and plenty of photo ops to make great memories.

Just happened upon this Garden. It is a must see. We were treated to see a Japanese Tea Ceremonial rehearsal. Beautiful and tranquil.

A beautiful park in the middle of the city. It was peaceful and well kept. Enjoyed the walk and watching the ground hogs play, chase or just hunting in general. Took a break in the gazebo and it was nice and breezy.

We drove by the park for almost a week and had all but decided to skip it before finding an hour of free time on our last day in Hawaii. We are so glad we did. The park is beautiful, with unique trees and wildlife,...More

Not a good idea as it does not have adequate lighting in the evening and you could turn an ankle as the surface is uneven.
