Liliuokalani Park and Gardens with its toriI gates, pagodas, stone lanterns, fishponds, rock gardens, curved moon bridge, and Shoroan Tea House, the 20-acre park has a definite Asian sensation to it. The gardens were dedicated in 1917 by Hawaii's final reigning queen, Queen Liliuokalani, in memory of the first Japanese workers on sugar fields.
The location is close to the famed Banyan Drive, which is dotted with enormous trees with falling down roots and inscriptions honouring the many famous people who planted them. Coconut Island (Moku Ola), which is close by, is reachable by a footbridge. The serene grounds provide paved walkways for simple strolling, shade, and attractive grassy areas for picnics.
Open every day during the day.
