News & Updates
The Halawa Xeriscape Garden (HXG) displays xeric (dry) plants in a residential-scale setting to demonstrate how gardens can be visually attractive, while using less water than most popular garden plants. The garden is a three-acre landscaped park, located at 99-1268 Iwaena Street in Halawa Valley's Central Park Industrial Area, that promotes outdoor water conservation.
Visitors to the garden will see numerous varieties of native and introduced plants that conserve water, water-saving irrigation systems, mulches, and other xeriscape ideas. The garden is open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Public open hours feature pre-registered workshops.
"Our tours were excellent!...The walk through the outdoor garden was very informative. Our students were encouraged to use their senses as they observed, smelled, and touched different plants."
Free 1-hour group garden tours are available by appointment and with the Wednesday Brown Bag Tours. The tours are available for kindergarten and older. Please review the additional tour information before submitting a request for a tour or speaker through our online form or by email using a fillable PDF form.
The garden is open to the public for self-guided tours every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Free brown bag tours are available from 12 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. every Wednesday. It's a great way to get out of the office, get some fresh air, and enjoy your lunch while learning about Oahu's water cycle and efficient water conservation practices, followed by a guided tour to learn how to select unthirsty plants for your own garden. Reservations are not required; however, please call (808) 748-5315 and let us know you are coming.
