This 400-acre garden was originally built by the US Army to provide flood protection for Kane'ohe. With the Ko'olau mountains as its backdrop, the garden specializes in Hawaiian flora, the perfect place for a weekend picnic with the kids. If you love nature photography, this worth a visit. There is a duck pond where kids can feed the ducks as well as weekend camping areas. There are also several hiking trails to choose from and bringing insect repellant will be most helpful as well. The bathrooms near the camping areas are well kept.
