We happened upon the gardens when we had a bit of time to kill and tok a picnic lunch from a local vendor. Quiet, clean, welcoming spot with lots of space and beautiful acknowledgement of sister city in Japan

Whether walking from nearby hotel or driving in, this is a pleasant walk with interesting monuments along a pretty path amid large trees and plants. Saw many joggers, walkers, and mothers with small children.

We made a quick stop here while in Hilo. It’s a small park, but it had nice views of the bay. The grounds are well kept, cute streams and bridges. We also saw a turtle grazing on algae.

Beautiful Gardens and quite unexpected. We had a very relaxing stroll through and admired the wonderful plantings and bridges around the well maintained garden. Well worth a look.

We didn't get to walk these gardens the last time so we made a priority to do so this visit. Very nice walk through the park. We walked through and across to the water. Saw a sea turtle swimming. Quick little walk, but very nice...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.
