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.
