A garden in the midst of busy downtown Honolulu? Yes! & here at Foster Botanical Garden, visitors find a refreshing change from the chaos of the city. As the oldest of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, Foster Garden displays a mature & impressive collection of tropical plants. Some of the magnificent trees in this 14-acre garden were planted in the 1850s by Dr. William Hillebrand. They marked the beginning of a heritage that became The Honolulu Botanical Gardens.

Strolling or driving through these lush four hundred acres in windward Oahu, you will truly agree that Ho`omaluhia is rightfully named "a peaceful refuge." Opened in 1982, this garden in Kaneohe features plantings from major tropical regions around the world grouped geographically. Special emphasis is placed on conserving plants native to Hawaii.

Koko Crater Botanical Garden

In 1958, 200 acres on the slopes & basin of Koko Crater at the eastern end of Oahu were set aside as a botanical garden. Although it is still only partially developed, long-range plans envision Koko Crater Botanical Garden as an example of a xeriscape. Here selective planting & water conservation techniques transform this landscape into a garden where plants suitable to these desert-like surroundings can thrive & flourish.

Lili`uokalani Botanical GardenLili`uokalani Botanical GardenLili`uokalani Botanical Garden

Just north of Foster Garden & located between North Kuakini & School Streets, is Lili`uokalani Botanical Garden. Portions of this 7½ acre garden were once the property & favorite picnic grounds of Queen Lili`uokalani, the last reigning monarch of Hawai`i. She later bequeathed her land to the City & County of Honolulu to be used for the public's enjoyment. This developing garden is devoted to native Hawaiian plants. The garden is open from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily. Closed on Christmas & New Year's days.

Wahiawa Botanical Garden

Cradled between the Waianae & Koolau mountain ranges in central Oahu lies Wahiawa Botanical Garden - the "tropical jewel" of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens. This 27-acre garden & forested ravine dates back to the 1920s when this land was first used by sugar planters as an experimental arboretum. Your tour will take you among plants that thrive in the cooler environment & shady, humid habitat of this tropical rain forest.
