Against a backdrop of rare orchids and exotic cacti, the Fosters Botanical Gardens is an Edenic experience that’s not to be missed. With 13.5 acres of land, the garden is home to a diverse variety of plants collected by botanists William Hellibrand and later, Mary and Thomas Foster. Since its inception in 1853, the park has introduced around 10,000 different species of plants to Hawaii. The park is as rich in life as it is in history. A great escape into a carefully crafted wild, Fosters Botanical Gardens is a breath of fresh air.
