Occupying the site of an old fort, spans just under 1 hectare (2 acres) and contains several heritage sites on the self-guided trail through the town's historical district. The star attraction of the park is a banyan tree, planted here in 1873 to mark the 50th anniversary of the first American Protestant mission in Lahaina. Now the largest banyan tree in all of Hawaii, the giant trunk and its aerial root system cover nearly 2,700 sq m (29,000 sq ft) of the park. Native to India, this banyan is one of 60 types of fig trees currently found on the islands of Hawaii.

Lahaina Banyan Court reviews
The park is nicely kept and is certainly a nice meeting place in the shade. This tree is just outstanding! I've never seen anything quite like it. But this part of nature needs to be cared for so..... more »
Worth parking for, this historic and magnificent specimen keeps you cool while you snack. A nice break on your drive up the coast. more »
This tree is amazing! It actually is one Tree but has come up in several different places and it's connected above ground, it is awesome to look at it. You will find it at the end the Front Street across from where the shuttle will drop you off. You're not supposed to climb it but you know there is always someone who thinks it's cute to let their kids climb on it. They actually had musicians in the same area clean and vendor set-up selling little items under the tree
It's pretty neat. As you've read, the whole thing is one tree with the vines growing down to become their own tree trunks. I would say go out of your way to see it, but you are here and found parking consider making the stop.
