Lyon Arboretum - Review

Spread across the upper region of the lush Manoa Valley, the 200 acre of Lyon Arboretum and Botanical garden is a man-made tropical paradise.

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.

A camera is the perfect company to capture the beautiful flowers and trees in pictures and if you love hiking, the trails offers a refreshing experience.

Lyon Arboretum, Honolulu Reviews

  • Definitely a hidden gem on Oahu! Most tourists hike the Manoa Fall which is right next door, however almost never get to go to this Botanical Garden that appertains to Manoa University. This place is perfect! Never crowded, simply beautifully kept, and you will see tons of tropical flowers and trees. Get up early, hike Manoa Falls first when it's not too crowded, then take a short walk to the Arboretum; I bet you will like the later better!

  • Very beautiful place people here really know what there doing. Many different variety of plants lots and lots of flowers. Also a very nice short path to a waterfall not a very big pond to swim in or anything but good place to unwind I think for me spring and summer is my favorite time to go many plants and insects around lots of the trees that fruit has fruit and plants that flower have lots of flowers alot off different insects wandering too. And also the birds, nice selection of birds beautiful birds big and small I like to just take a walk get lost in the beauty of the trees and plants and the sweet songs of the birds

  • Very well taken care of. There's a main path that will lead you straight to a waterfall or you can take one of the many smaller paths. The hike was about 25 minutes to the waterfall.

  • Incredible place! Make sure you bring an umbrella or raincoat, the Ko‘olau's have a sneaky ability to just start pouring out of nowhere. This place is definitely a must for visitors and long time residents alike. So many beautiful plants and ‘Aihualama is really pretty as well.

  • A beautiful arboretum filled with native and introduced trees. Although not all labelled, there are many different sections dedicated to certain types of plants and their uses. It's really huge and there are many winding paths, so make sure to have a tour guide or a map to make it through. Some paths are muddy and it often rains, so it's a good idea to bring rain boots and an umbrella just in case!
