Now the largest banyan tree in all of Hawaii, the giant trunk and its aerial root system cover nearly 2,700 sq m (29,000 sq ft) of the park.

  • A beautiful and peaceful courtyard, nice and cool due to the shade provided by the Banyan tree. The tree has to be seen to be believed - it’s so unusual how the branches bend down and become new...

  • Totally worth seeing- the surrounding trees all connecting to the central tree, the signs talking about the locals who have protected them for so long. 100% of the reviews I read mentioned the homeless that hang out there. But the tourists were the least respectful of the spot, carving names in the bark, climbing when it clearly says not to, playing music loudly, and getting in others' personal space. We should be better humans.
  • Don't skip this! We were going to skip it & I'm so glad we didn't. It's pretty incredible & we got to see it as sunset so it was all lit up for the holidays. So beautiful! It really was so special! You can park in the public parking lot for free.
