The Foster Botanical Garden is the oldest botanical garden in Hawaii and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The garden was built in the mid 19th century and consist of the Upper Terrace (the oldest part of the garden), Middle Terraces, Economic Garden (consisting of herbs and dyes), Prehistoric Glen (primitive plants collection), the Lyon Orchid Garden and the Hybrid Orchid Display.

The trees at the park are its crown jewels- especially a Sacred Fig tree which is a clone descendant of the Bodhi tree that Buddha sat under to gain enlightenment.

A walk here is nothing short of a spiritual experience as you admire the different varieties of trees and flowers and truly detox from the urban hustle-bustle.

Foster Botanical Garden, Honolulu Reviews - Write a Review

  • I love that Honolulu makes city parks and gardens a priority. We live close to this place and have been to several events here like the art installation. The flowers and trees are beautiful. The park is a wonderful place to have a date or a picnic.

  • My mother asked me to take her to a garden in Hawaii. It came to our surprise how beautiful this Garden really is. We were able to experience thousands of plants we have never seen in our lives. We also saw the tallest plant in the entire world which is so unique & was a wonderful experience to have Witnessed. We spent few hours here appreciating the beauty here in Hawaii.

  • Beautiful botanical garden in the city. The old trees were amazing. The rainbow eucalyptus was awesome. Another must see botanical garden. I saw the Talipot palm in bloom!

  • Love this place, beautiful, historic, great guided tour... a bit long but worth it as the guide was wonderful and full of great knowledge, plus the gardens themselves are amazing. I've been several times and always love going back!

  • Really enjoyed our visit, perfect for little ones to run around and get dirty. Some of the trees just take your breath away. Will go again for sure! No playground. Yes bathroom facilities. Yes shaded. Yes gated.
