Wahiawa Botanical Garden

The Wahiawa Botanical Garden, 27 acres (11 ha) is a botanical garden on a high plateau in central Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, United States, located between the Wai’anae and Ko’olau mountain ranges. It is one of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens, and home to a collection of tropical flora requiring a relatively cool environment, with emphasis on native Hawaiian plants. It is nicknamed the “tropical jewel” of the Botanical Gardens. The Garden’s site began in the 1920s, when the Hawaiian Sugar Planters’ Association leased land from the State of Hawaiʻi for experimental tree planting. Most of the Garden’s large trees date from that era. The property was transferred to Honolulu in 1950, and opened as a botanical garden in 1957. It is open seven days a week, from 9am to 4 pm.

I love Wahiawa Botanical garden. This is such a great place to visit and best of all, it's free to attend. There are tons of lush plant varieties, educational classes, and is one of the sites of the Arbor Day free plant giveaways. The workers here have been really friendly, so it's great to visit. There are some flat surfaces and an easy path that people can explore the gardens. There is also a steep walk down to visit other parts of the garden. I've seen people read, draw, and take pictures here. Great hidden gem in Wahiawa!

It just so happens that buried deep in the urban jungle that is Wahiawa, you’ll find a real jungle. Off the main drag, and about two miles down California Ave, lies a 27-acre forested ravine known as the Wahiawa Botanical Garden. You’re welcome.

Wahiawa Botanical Garden is a great place to visit if you want to be quickly transported into a lush tropical rainforest sanctuary with very little effort. The twenty-seven acre garden is located in a ravine that was used in the 1930s by Hawaii Sugar Planters Association as an “experimental arboretum” according to the City's website for this garden. The garden opened in 1957.The main walkway is wide and (I believe) ADA accessible, the earthy red concrete beautifully contrasting with the greenery and the decorative lampposts adding much charm. There are many plants to see on this route alone, from kauri to nutmeg to 'ōhi'a. Those with good walking shoes that don't mind traversing an unpaved path can descend into the ravine to view native plants. There is a beautiful jade vine right in the parking lot. archives.starbulletin.co…

This 27-acre city park between the Waianae and Koolau Mountains in central Oahu features hiking trails and more than 60 types of old trees as well as a distinguished fern collection. The park is one of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens. Set on a plateau at an elevation of nearly 1,000 feet above sea level, the garden receives about 65 inches of rain each year. The cool and humid climate supports a lush growth of tropical flora from taro to Hawaiian ferns. Wahiawa Garden is particularly noted for its collections of Hawaiian palms as well as the aroid garden, Hawaiian tree ferns and epiphytic plants.

Located in central Oahu between the Wai’anae and Ko’olau mountain ranges, this 27-acre park makes for a nice stop on your way to Oahu’s North Shore. Hawaiian sugar farmers owned this site from the 1920s until 1950, when they donated the land for public use. In 1957, the land was designated a garden, and today the Wahiawa Botanical Garden is a special place home to a wide range of tropical plant species from around the world.

The park was founded in the 1920s by the Hawaii Sugar Planters’ Association which used the area as an experimental arboretum. Wahiawa, which means “place of noise,” opened as a botanical garden in 1957. The garden is open from 9 to 4 daily except for Christmas and New Year’s Day. Admission is free. Volunteer docents will conduct guided tours by appointment. Call 621-5463.

The Wahiawa Botanical Garden is 27 acres of gorgeous tropical plants and towering trees, all well marked and connected by easily walkable paths–including many that are wheel chair and stroller accessible. Now owned by Honolulu, it is free and open seven days a week. A photographer's paradise.

The garden, dating back to the 1930s, is one of the five Honolulu Botanical Gardens under the care of the City and County. Wahiawa’s high altitude and cooler climate allow a unique variety of tropical flora to thrive, and its winding pathways and large grassy areas make this place both comfortable and an adventure. Be sure to check out their stocked collection of epiphytic plants, and to sign up for a group tour. So fill up your gas tank, pack a picnic and bring some bug spray 😉

Love this garden! Tucked away in Wahiawa, it doesn't look like much from the road but is actually quite big inside. So many neat plants and flowers, great shade just to stroll around in, and enough of varying pathways to get in a decent workout. Very lush and green, fairly cool in the shade and nice and quiet. Probably one of my favorites on island. Take bug spray and water and go check it out!

Anyone who loves plants will enjoy strolling through this peaceful, 27-acre rain forest. It is one of 5 Honolulu Department of Parks botanical gardens, each representing a different eco-system. A hidden gem in a lovely little town. This makes for a quiet place to roam around. The garden is well maintained, with labeled tropical plants, decent restrooms, and interesting landscaping. You walk through a real jungle with really big trees, which seem to be hundreds of years old. We were particularly impressed by the variety of trees. The fact that it's all free really puts it over the top for me. A truly unexpected treasure in a paradise valley. The fact that it's all free really puts it over the top for me. They are well maintained, clean and enjoyable to walk around. One of the best on Oahu.
