The tree was really neat to see after hearing about it my whole life from my mother. It was huge! But there were homeless people there every time we went there & they were loitering, sleeping, smoking pot, smoking cigarettes, drinking, mumbling, etc. It made my kids nervous & it took away from the serenity of this special place. I'm... More

Lovely park near the waterfront. Saturday had a craft market however the prices were very very high. Homeless people frequent night and early morning and I didn't feel safe walking through.

We visit this area every time we visit Maui. It's amazing that this entire block is only one tree. During Christmas, the mammoth tree is covered with colored Christnas lights. The area is usually crowded but we visited early one morning and had to share the park with very few people. We also visited during a art fair featuring local... More

Okay, the tree itself is great and totally historic. But this is not about the tree. This cannot BE about the tree when the tree itself is a vector for harassment of every sort. In my nearly week-long stay in Lahaina, I had to walk past the banyan tree every day to get into town. This meant being hassled every... More

The banyan tree in this park is simply amazing in its size. You need to be careful where you are due to the fact there are many birds that hang out in the tree so don't be looking up too much... You also need to be mindful to he homeless that hang out in the park but here are a... More

The tree was really cool! The park is full of homeless folks just hanging out. No one was aggressive or rude but this would have been good to know.

A huge Banyan tree right smack in the middle of Lahaina. Worth checking it out. Tons of brids come back here each night to roost, and they make an incredible racket!! Lots of pathways and benches to sit, and get out of the heat of the day. some of the benches transform into makeshift beds at night for the local... More

If you don't mind the homeless of Maui, an interesting stop on an otherwise busy tourist town. Lots of history and fun to see.

The Banyan trees make a great place to sit and enjoy the breeze after shopping. Thousands of birds roost in park every night. They make so much noise and then suddenly, it is eerily quiet.

The Banyan tree is beautiful. I had never seen anything like it, the old courthouse in the park is now a museum and art gallery and is worth checking out.
