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
It is one big tree with many branches. It was my fist time to see a tree like this. I stopped here when driving along the west coast of Maui.

Very neat to see and very glad we stopped for a look. Lots of people roaming around and lots of birds in the branches………heads up you don’t want a mess on your shirt or head

Amazing and Beautiful Banyan tree! Must see in person to truly admire its beauty. Branches extend 100 ft in either direction and the tree itself is over 150 years old. Plenty of places to sit and relax in the shade along with historical buildings nearby espalier. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby as well. You can make a day exploring this little community.
Exquisite banyan court. The tree is massive and is a very cool thing to visit. Love how the tree is supported by many other trees. Make sure to go through the entire circle to appreciate all of it. Mid day is a good time to go when the crowd seems to be less.
