Hidden in the city is a quiet place to have a picnic or a quiet moment to sit near a waterfall. Sandwiched between the Honolulu neighborhoods of Liliha and Nu’uanu lies the beautiful Lili’uokalani Botanical gardens.
This area was once the land of the last reigning monarch of Hawai’i, Queen Lili’uokalani. She favored this area for picnics near the waterfalls and granted the lands to the state to share with the public. The city created the botanical gardens on 7 1/2 acres and has made sure to cultivate Native Hawaiian plants throughout the garden.
The dominant feature of this park is Nu’uanu stream, which starts in the upper valley winding its way down to Honolulu Harbor. A bridge provides access to the divided park with two parking lots and public restrooms and plenty of shaded open areas to picnic or just relax. It is hard to believe that a freeway and major road are just a few yards from the south end of the gardens.
If you ever visit this little garden maybe you will have a little snack by the waterfall, relax under a tree or try a little Tai Chi.
Facts about the park can be found on the state website.
The park is extremely shaded, I shot this with Kodak Elitechrome 100 on a Canon AE-1.

New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
