I live within 10 miles so I visit as often as possible. No admission. Restrooms are clean. Parking is limited but usually okay. Pamphlets of interest are available at counter.

Visited the Wahiawa Botanical Gardens in February 2017. The gardens have good walking paths and tracks but there are some of the gardens that are only accessible via stairs. There are is a great variety of species of plants and trees throughout the garden.

We really wanted to go to a Botanical Garden and this one was free. It was very quiet and empty so we had the place almost to ourselves. You can get a map for a nice self-guided tour. There are different levels of paths depending...More

This is a free Botanical Garden. We even tried to give a donation as we left and the gentleman didn't seem to know what to do with the money. We enjoyed walking down to the gulch on several different paths. There was trees, flowers and...More

Sorry, cannot recall how much we paid. I am sure one can find from their web site. It was not very expensive.
