Thoughtfully laid out botanical garden that educates about the first Hawaiians and their plants. Lovely path winds around a hillside and ends with a traditional hut. Booklet explaining the plants and uses was very informative. Well-worth a visit!

The drive out to the gardens is the worst part, but from Princeville, it is beautiful drive anyway. The gardens were great to educate about the plants pre-Polynesian, and post European. Even though most of the plants seem Hawaiian today. Great history, beautiful stroll and...More
