Koko Crater Botanical Garden
This 200-acre stretch of Koko Crater was set aside in 1958, with a long-term (as yet only partially realized) plan of turning it into a botanical garden. Eventually, it will be a landscape where endangered plants suitable to this desert-like region can survive and flourish. Even in the early stages of development, visitors can find collections of plumeria and other flowers. A two-mile loop trail leads through dryland plant collections from around the world. No visitor facilities (restrooms, drinking fountains, etc.) have yet been constructed. Entrance to the garden is free.
Koko Crater Botanical Garden is a good start for a park still under development. There are many interesting plants to see, and a two-mile loop allows visitors to traverse the entire cultivated garden section.
Unfortunately, there are no services here, so be sure to bring water and anything else you might need. There aren't any restroom facilities nearby, either. Sturdy walking shoes are a must for the uneven dirt trails throughout. This part of O'ahu can be rather warm, so consider coming early in the day.
