NOTICE: Due to a renovation project, the Hālawa Xeriscape Garden (HXG) tour is unavailable until about May 2024.

The Hālawa Xeriscape Garden displays xeric (dry) plants in a residential-scale setting to demonstrate how gardens can be visually attractive, while using less water than most popular garden plants. The garden is a three-acre landscaped park, located at 99-1268 Iwaena Street in Hālawa Valley's Central Park Industrial Area, that promotes outdoor water conservation.

Visitors to the garden will see numerous varieties of native and introduced plants that conserve water, water-saving irrigation systems, mulches, and other xeriscape ideas.

Applicable DOE Standards

  • SC.ENV.5.6: Explain why recycling and conservation of resources are important
  • SC.3.5.1: Describe the relationship between structure and function in organisms
  • SC.B.4.3: Compare the form and function of various plants as producers in biomes

Group Tours

When the garden is open, free 1-hour group garden tours are available by appointment. The tours are available for kindergarten students through adults. Please review the additional tour information before submitting a request to tours@hbws.org.

"Our tours were excellent!...The walk through the outdoor garden was very informative. Our students were encouraged to use their senses as they observed, smelled, and touched different plants."

Self-Guided Tours

After construction, the garden will be open most Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Upon arrival, visitors need to sign in at the Garden office window.
