The Winding Path Through This Hawaii Park Is Positively Enchanting

From popular tourist trails to strenuous backpacking treks, the Hawaiian Islands are home to countless incredible hikes. But sometimes, you’re not in the mood for a hike and would prefer a leisurely stroll through a peaceful park instead. Located in the heart of Hilo – Hawaii’s oldest city – near Coconut Island on the breathtaking Banyan Drive, is Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, a positively enchanting slice of waterfront paradise. The meandering path that winds its way through this charming park will easily transport you to Japan and is perfect for a relaxing stroll.

Check out the Friends of Lili’uokalani Gardens Facebook page for information on their upcoming events to celebrate the garden’s centennial through 2019 (the garden was under construction in 1917 and 1918, and opened to the public in 1919), as well as more charming photographs of the park sure to leave you in a relaxed state of mind – even if you are at work right now.
