Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden Professional Review and Guide
"This is a compact little jewel crammed in among apartment buildings, just right for a stroll and a picnic in the heat of the day.This quiet little garden is within easy walking distance of the Foster Botanical Garden (though you can drive if you like). It was a favorite of Queen Lilioukalani, the last reigning monarch of Hawai’i, who bequeathed it to Honolulu for everyone to enjoy. It has a grassy lawn to stroll along, planted with native Hawaiian plants with identifying labels. Its best feature is a stream that tumbles over a little waterfall and splashes through the middle of the park from end to end. At the upper end are some big old banyan trees whose curtains of aerial roots screen the park from the city outside. You can cross the stream on a bridge and picnic on the lawn, as do many of the locals at lunchtime."
