Restrooms are few and far between south of Kona. This is the first public one we run into. Facilities are ok, but work. There is also a trail that we tried part of. Probably interesting but they suggest it would take a couple hours, which...More

This natural wayside park is a tourist attraction for the travellers and is situated at close proximity to the city so it is easily accessible by cabs.

This is more like a rest area with a bbq and clean bathrooms. It's not a park, park. But it is beautiful.

There are clean composting restrooms, however no overnight camping or parking. No food concessions. This park is about halfway between Pahala and Kailua-Kona. Good place to rest for a short while. There are a few picnic tables. Coming from the south, stop in Ocean View...More

Nothing here to write home about. It's a small park with limited picnic tables however there is a washroom facility if you need a break.

Philly and cheese with fries, roadside under the Jacaranda trees. Great food.... on the highway.... in the country away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centers... this try is where the locals eat.!

I had been hoping for more of an arboretum, but felt like a regular 'run of the mill' park. Nice, but nothing to go out of your way to visit.
