Description:- Lili'uokalani Park and Gardens is a 24.14-acre (97,700 m2) park with Japanese gardens, located on Banyan Drive in Hilo on the island of Hawaii. The park's site was donated by Queen Lili?uokalani, and lies southeast of downtown Hilo, on the Waiakea Peninsula in Hilo Bay. Much of the park now consists of Edo-style Japanese gardens, built 1917-1919, and said to be the largest such gardens outside Japan. The gardens contain Waihonu Pond as well as bridges, ponds, pagodas, statues, torii, and a Japanese teahouse.
