Liliuokalani Gardens Review

Designed to honor Hawaii's first Japanese immigrants, Liliuokalani Gardens' 30 acres of fish-filled ponds, stone lanterns, half-moon bridges, elegant pagodas, and a ceremonial teahouse make it a favorite Sunday destination. The surrounding area, once a busy residential neighborhood, was destroyed by a 1960 tsunami that caused widespread devastation and killed 61 people.

    Wonderful Waterfront Park

    Situated right next to Coconut Island, this park is a gem. One of the most amazing trees I have ever seen sits in the middle of the park, the gardens and ponds are impeccable. While we were there, many locals were having picnics and there was a tai'chi class being held. I would love to live near a park like this. My favorite thing in Hilo!

    Pretty park popular with locals

    If you're from an area with waterfront parks like we are this is not going to knock your socks off, but if you're in the Banyan Drive/Coconut Island area, this picturesque park and gardens is certainly worth a stroll.
