Hoomaluhia State Park, Oahu

The park's name means "a place of peace and tranquility" and it is located along the dramatic Koolau mountain range in Kaneohe. Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden was designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide flood protection for Kaneohe.

The 400 acres are geographically laid out and represent tropical regions from around the world: the Philippines, Hawaii, Africa, Sri Lanka, India, Polynesia, Melanesia, Malaysia and tropical America. A network of trails helps visitors discover an abundance of endangered and rare plants. The collection includes over 10,000 specimens.

The park is also a recreational area and includes a 32-acre lake (no swimming allowed) and campgrounds (Friday through Monday with permits). Open 9am to 4pm daily. Located at the end of Luluku Road; Kaneohe, Oahu.
