The number of trails that wind throughout its vast expanse and the serene water features that embrace the greenery all around, is something no one should miss when in Honolulu.
Do check out the native Hawaiian plants maintained here- especially the Pritchardia spp. (palms), gingers, heliconias, bromeliads, and aroids.

Visited Lyon Arboretum on Sep 28, 2017 and only encountered 2 other parties. So if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, this is it. Truly amazing place if you're into plants. Free parking and only $5 suggested donation, you can easily spent a few ours in this botanical garden. Loved it!!!!
One of my favorite places on the island. Lot of birds and beautiful scenery. Very small waterfall at the end but not much to see. However, there are some small native fish if you look close.
Ideal place to view as many tropical flowers, trees, plants. Hiking is a must to appreciate everything this place has to offer. I prefer to observe nature from various angles so I was not able to view them all in the 3 hour time slot. If given another chance, I will stay longer. Camera is must to relive your experience once you depart.
Visited this arboretum probably 7 years ago but had only viewed the beautiful gardens opposite the visitors center and parking lot. This time I loved the native Hawaiian garden and did the short hike to the waterfall (water trickle) twice! Went with a friend who carried her 7 month old baby (main trail is gravel path and rocks, not paved for strollers), and another friend with a knee injury but the terrain was ok as long as she watched out for slippery rocks and tree roots. Nice balance of manicured and natural growth areas. Make a donation at the visitors center and leave time at the end of your visit to shop!! Thankfully didn't need the umbrella we borrowed, but there were some at the visitors center they loan out just in case! Clean restrooms a plus! Definitely kid-friendly and will bring my own kids the next time!!
A wonderful place for those interested in hiking & botanical wonders. Make sure you use mosquito repellent, even if you have to pay for the sheets when you sign in at the office or you will regret it! I always spend at least 2 hours here. It is also great for photography.
