Click here for directions to Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden.
- Along Mamalahoa Highway in places where the police officers who will be directing festival traffic feel that it is safe.
- In the grass field behind the new visitor center. The grass field is accessed by pulling between the baseball diamond and the new visitor center (which is under construction).
- At the Kealakekua Ranch Center lower parking lot (past the garden about 1/3 mile, mauka side). A shuttle (courtesy of Hawaii Forest and Trail) will run every 15 minutes beginning at 8:30 am.
There are two options fo handicapped parking (with disabled parking permit). The first is to pull in at the entrance to the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden, just south of mile marker 110 and mauka of the King Kamehameha sign. Come to the top of the driveway. The second is to pull into the new parking lot below the new visitor center, just north of the baseball diamond.
Cooking contest entrants
Cooking Contest entrants should pull in at the entrance to the Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden, just south of mile marker 110 and mauka of the King Kamehameha sign. A parking attendant will ask you to show your contest entry. You may drive in to drop off your dish, but parking will probably not be available due to very limited space, and you will have to park your car elsewhere after dropping off your dish.
