All reviews japanese garden coconut island banyan trees banyan drive beautiful park water features hilo bay cafe peaceful place walk around picnic lunch mauna kea nice walk short walk stroll bridge paths pagoda
This park is very pleasant with pagodas, koi ponds, a few footbridges over the ponds, and a traditional Japanese tea house. It was a nice detour on our walk to downtown Hilo from the cruise port. The view of the bay is quite nice, too.
You can drive down Banyan drive which has majestic banyan trees lining both sides of the road to get to this park. Once there, you can enjoy all the unique little foot bridges among several ponds. It is a great place for a fitness walk...More
This is one of the nicest parks I have ever been to in Hawaii. It has lots of interesting areas to rest, play, and enjoy. The ponds and paths wide around with different views at every bend. The pagodas a other structures throughout the park...More
This is a very pleasant place to walk around or to just sit and enjoy the scenery. The pond is tidal with a connection to the harbor alongside the park. There is parking, and rest room facilities are available in the garden.
I recommend this place up have picnics and to entertain kids since it is spacious and have nice scenery! My nine year old had fun catching little white shrimp. Unfortunately it started to rain and there is not much places to hide and stay dry.
