You can stroll across arched stone bridges and pause in pagodas that overlook the bay. To get there turn makai on Lihiwai Street from Highway 19 (Kamehameha Ave.) in Hilo. Just before Banyan Drive splits to the right there is a small parking lot on the left. There is also parking available along Banyan Drive. This is a popular location for local folks to play on weekends.
