“Waikahaulu Falls”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Kid time we use to spend each summer day at the falls, a favorite swimming hole. I don't think you can now swim there though for fear of getting ill due to the polluted water. But don't let this scare you for here is a pristine garden in the heart of Downtown Honolulu.

“Beautiful gardens and a pond beneath a waterfall that you can swim in.”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

This attraction is so beautiful. I had not walked far when I came upon a friendly peacock who did not mind having his picture taken. The gardens are a perfect stroll with the trees and fauna labeled in case you are interested. The best part is the waterfall at the end of the road that has a pond you can swim in. That was so much fun. I felt like a kid again. There are lifeguards on duty and a cabana where you can change. Don't just stand there and look or sit on the benches. Take the opportunity to do something that you have not been done before.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 26 June 2006

We had our wedding here, and it was beautiful. I was surprised how quiet and secluded it was even though in the middle of the city! It's like a secret little world in there.

“A pleasant suprise”
Reviewed 15 January 2004

The park is small, but is an unexpected oasis in the middle of the city. It's a nice, shady place to take an afternoon break, with a small natural waterfall and a variety of local flora.
