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 great to see trees that have lived a long time. This is a cool thing to see on a hot day. There are lots of people when we went both times. But there is plenty of parking just up the road... more »
We visited this park after browsing along Front Street. We've seen banyan trees on Oahu, but never this large. It was nice strolling beneath the shade of the tree! 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.
