  • Can't be described. One tree covering a whole park! It was awesome! A cool place to sit and have a coffee or shave ice or ice cream or any other treat you can purchase on Front Street!

  • To say this tree is enormous is an understatement. The tree spans almost two acres and is approximately 60-feet tall. With its 16 trunks, it is considered the largest banyan tree in the United...

  • Spectacular banyan tree! The tree is so unique and beautiful. This is a must see. Be respectful of nature. No climbing nor abuse to the trees. There are very unique views of various trees on the acre. There are plenty of activities around the area as well. This is a busy place to be on the weekends. The street has little shops and plenty of places to eat.
  • Don't skip this! We were going to skip it & I'm so glad we didn't. It's pretty incredible & we got to see it as sunset so it was all lit up for the holidays. So beautiful! It really was so special! You can park in the public parking lot for free.
