Heritage Gardens at Kepaniwai Park features paved paths that take you through gardens, ceremonial structures, and statues, all celebrating the varying cultures that make up Hawaii today.

You may follow the paths in any direction from the trailhead. You'll pass pools of koi and cross over a creek with tropical flowers via a bridge. Along your journey you'll find a Philippine nipa uht, a Korean pagoda, a Polynesian hale, a Japanese house, a Chinese temple and a Portuguese dwelling. There is also a New England style cottage, a relic of the time when missionaries came to convert the locals.
