BOTANICAL GARDENS OF HONOLULU
Today, the Honolulu Botanical Gardens are comprised of five different sites: Foster Botanical Garden, Ho'omaluhia Botanical Garden, Koko Crater Botanical Garden, Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden and Wahiawa Botanical Garden. They are operated by the Honolulu County government for the enjoyment of the public. The oldest is the Foster Botanical Garden started by Dr. William Hillebrand in the 1850s. He leased land from Queen Kalama and planted hundreds of trees. Queen Lili'uokulani bequeathed more land for use as public gardens that became the Lili'uokalani Botanical Garden.
