Looking for a garden, we found this place. It is a shady, grassy expanse with meandering walks around water features, among large banyon trees. It is a quiet,  peaceful place. At the north end it is a walk through a Japanese garden. and across a bridge to Moku Ola island. While there we saw spear fishermen hunting for  their catch,... More

Found this park by pure chance when our grandson needed a place to run around in after sitting nicely in a restaurant for 1.5 hours. Beautiful park to walk around, bridges to cross, beautiful trees and flowers

Liliuokalani Park and Gardens is in Hilo which has the most precipitation in United States. Warm weather plus abundant rainfall makes this park so beautiful and green. The park is sitting along eastern coast. You can seeboth ocean and garden. Trees in park are huge, there are Zen-style statues, Japanese pavillion and washroom in the park.

after embarking from the cruise ship, we were a group of 7 and we found a nice driver with a van that for a very reasonable fee took us all the way to see that part of hilo: the botanical garden, the Akaka falls, the Rainbow falls , and via the Banyan tree road back to the ship.

We stopped here while on a tour bus and we didn't even know it was going to be a stop, but we were very glad it was. This park/garden was just so beautiful ... and we would have liked to spend more time exploring and enjoying the scenery. My 14 year old son kept talking about how that was his... More

Lovely park and gardens with ponds and decorative bridges and pagodas right at the ocean. Families have fun here, great for picnicking or enjoying lunch on the grass or in one of the pagodas. LIttle old ladies crabbing, netting for prawns, lots of nearby fishermen, pleasant walking and lots of space for family gatherings, picnicking or just laying out in... More

The Liliuokalani Park and Gardens are a great place to stop for young families and for the elderly. You can stroll easily while being next to the ocean.

This Park is close by Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. It's well maintained and it's a nice walk when it's not raining.
