Parking for the garden is best accessed on the Makiki St. side of the park- there is a lot on the right hand side of the street. Walking and biking are encouraged!

Why is volunteering important for my health and well-being?
Volunteering is a great way to contribute your gifts, talents, and time to your community and is associated with major health benefits. Studies show that people who volunteer have lower rates of cancer, heart disease, and depression. Plus, they have lower healthcare costs. Volunteers report feeling happier and rewarded by learning something new and contributing to a worthy cause.
