Foster Botanical Garden - Review

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

  • Beautiful. Right near downtown is hidden this amazing park full of crazy plantlife. Admission is cheap and worth it. We did the family year pass since we go all the time even just for a quick stroll or some time to sit and reflect. They have a ton of volunteers that hold workshops, educate, etc. We just did a great guided meditation session last weekend. We also saw (smelled) the corpse flower in bloom. Great stuff.

  • Great tour. A lot of cool information and surprisingly hands on. The ground are very nice and a lot of information on Hawaii and how it came to develop its current landscape. Recommend it if you're in the area and have some spare time.

  • Nice small historical botanical gardens about 6km from Waikiki. Close to Chinatown. A peaceful place away from crowds and traffic 😀

  • This place is beautiful. Defiantly a great place to spend a few hours enjoying nature and all the beautiful plant life around you. When I spent I walked around for at least two and half hours and could have walked around more but I was hungry. There is a small admission fee, if you are a local resident it is slightly cheaper, it was only 7 bucks around for two people.

  • Would have given 5 stars if free. Well worth a visit. Trees well labelled. Helpful staff. Informative brochures
