     This garden is more of a swamp or wetlands.  Yet it is still worth a look. There are a number of different bird species that make this area a home. Also the views of the distance mountain ranges make for a nice view.

    From Waikiki  Take the Pali Highway over the mountains to Kamehameha Highway using the Kaneohe exit continue to  the H-3 and take the H-3 headed towards Kailua/MCBH. Take the saddle road exit to Kailua. Make a right turn onto Oneawa. Travel trough town until you reach Kailua Rd. Make a left onto Kailua Rd. You should be able to see the wetlands area after about a mile. Three is a small area where you can pull off the road and park.  Do not block the gate. Walk past the gate and you will be able to walk along the block wall to view the wetlands and wild birds.
