Nice Stop
Aug 2021
This is one of the many free things to do on Oahu and it worthwhile. I do not think it would not hold anyone’s interest for more than an hour or two unless you really were interested in plants and botany. I am not. It was, however, worth a visit. The gardens are big and there is ample parking. The lake has a huge population of fish that are fun to feed – so bring bread and they will entertain you for a bit. The overlook has a great view of the mountains behind the gardens. The botanical gardens are a good solid stop for someone in the area with some time to kill.

Enjoyable and Relaxing

It was a nice walk down to the lake on a paved trail. Fun to see all the flora and fauna. It’s a secret for locals only. No charge for entry which is great.

Amazing Views
Aug 2021
Perfect spot for any photos. Go to the welcome center before going anywhere. We never knew they had trails and one that leads down to the water. They will also recommend some photo spots.

Gorgeous views
Aug 2021 • Family
Gorgeous views, very picturesque. This place is free. You can bring food and just have a picnic out there. It closes sort of early to me. Right now several exhibits are closed but the lake side is open.

Free admission
Jul 2021 • Family
Came here with my family on July 4th at 9 am, which is when they open. Admission is free. I think it could be easy to miss because it's located in the suburbs. I don't know if a lot of tourists come here or know about it. It seemed like a lot of the people there were taking their morning walk/jogs.

Parking is also free and there are various areas you can drive up to/park/explore. There's also a nice little trail near the visitor's center where you'll see many different plants (along with a description) that leads to a pond.

It's not exactly close to where my sister lives so I don't see myself coming back. But if I lived in the neighborhood, I could definitely see myself coming here often.

Worth a visit if in the area.
Jul 2021 • Family
Definitely worth a visit if in the area. The famous Instagram street is just after you pass the security booth. You cannot stop and take pictures. Make sure you have your camera ready and set it up on top of your car. You are able to drive about 2/3 of the road and than it is closed. If you get out there, the Mountain Views are awesome.

Breezy Day in the Garden
Jul 2021 • Couples
I really enjoyed Hoʻomaluhia Botanical Garden. (approximately 400 acres) is a botanical garden located at 45–680 Luluku Road, Kāne'ohe, Oahu, Hawaii. It is part of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, and is open daily, without charge, except for Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
The view and scenery is peaceful and beautiful. I could walk around all day. There’s so many trails. What could make it better if the trails had names and /or directions. We really tried our best to use the map provided but it was really difficult to understand. One of the employees was nice enough to guide us on our way. Then 2 nice young ladies pointed us in the next scenic direction.
The weather, clouds and breeze was just what we needed to enjoy Our Day.
Maybe if I’m bold enough. We’ll do a weekend camping trip. You can camp out from Friday to Sunday. They have restrooms and a sink to do dishes ect. Way Cool 😎

Beautiful scenery
Jul 2021 • Friends
Incredibly beautiful. We parked at the visitor center and walked through the entire garden but you can drive through the main road and park at each parking lot, get out and explore the area, and then drive to the next spot. I’m happy that we decided to walk it all the first time we went. It’s A LOT of walking and a lot of steep uphills and downhills so keep that in mind when deciding if you want to walk or drive. They don’t allow you to take pictures along the main road, probably to avoid traffic issues, but you can take as many pictures and videos once you’re off the main road. The first path to the lake was my favorite, you get incredible views all around and a great view of the mountains. So many Koi fish in the lake. There are plenty of areas on the land to sit and have a picnic at one of the benches. We did see some people also setting up camp in the camping areas which was really nice. I highly recommend everyone experience this at least once when visiting Hawaii.

Drive in and stay
Jun 2021
The drive into the gardens is everything one can expect. It’s absolutely stunning. The lake is large and offered thousands of fish to look at. The garden is a wonderful place to find a table and have a picnic. Unfortunately for us it was so hot and humid, our kids didn’t want to stay and explore. I would love to come back during the winter and check it out. Or maybe the gardens can extend their closing time to 7 during the summers so that people can enjoy the gardens in the shade?

A fascinating tropical garden.
Jul 2021
The lush tropical vegetation was interesting and beautiful. We'd have liked to stop and take pictures, but there were signs that said no photography from cars or along the roadside; I'm not sure why.
