The name and location of the botanical garden in Honolulu

blulagoonDecember 13, 2005

I'm going to be going to Honolulu in a couple of weeks and there is a botanical garden in the city,that I managed to get to the last time I was there,but it was closed by the time I got there. What is the name of it? I cant remember for the life of me!

I also wonder if there is a way to get the bus routes in the city(so I can take a bus to the garden like I did last time-I dont remember the numbers of the routes I took,it would also be nice to be able to get around the city)

Probably the one you're thinking of is Foster Garden, on Vineyard Blvd. near downtown. There's also Lyon Arboretum back up in Manoa valley behind the University of Hawaii. Both are worth visiting. Lyon is much bigger, and not as "cultivated"-- more natural vegetation, and a gorgeous setting.

Lyon's website is at

You can get to either one by bus (you have to walk about a quarter of a mile to Lyon). I'm not sure the number of the bus lines, but if you called the gardens they could tell you.

Here is a link that might be useful: Foster Botanic Garden
