Keiki day – Things to Do on Kauai with Kids

Na ‘Aina Kai (pronounced “nine-I-nuh-kie”) Botanical Gardens is a magnificent testament to the spirit of Kauai. This you may already know. What many people don’t know, however, is that once a month the park holds a special celebration geared especially towards children, or “keiki” (“key-key”) as the locals say it. The regular event is a great opportunity for families traveling to the island. It makes it possible for little ones to enjoy the trip as much as adults.

Kauai Kids Activities in the Garden

Na ‘Aina Kai is located on Kauai’s northern shore on Route 56, a short drive from our Princeville rentals. It’s the site of some of the most magnificent and well-tended gardens found anywhere on earth. Joyce and Ed Doty forged them from the surrounding countryside when they retired to Kauai from their Northern California ranch in 1979. Over the years the project has blossomed and expanded to include both formal and free growing gardens. Exquisite bronze sculptures accent the natural beauty and bear testimony to the skills of the artisans who created them.

Experienced guides lead visitors on an adventure to discover the unforgettable delights that make Na ‘Aini Kai an irreplaceable part of Kauai’s premier attractions. During your trip you can wander through the hedge maze, relax in the Japanese tea house, take a trek along the adjoining Pacific coastline, and marvel at the abundance of local wildlife. The children’s garden includes its own maze along with a full-size passenger railroad, a cabin fashioned from locally harvested teak wood, and plenty of tunnels, slides, and bridges designed with safety in mind.

A visit to Na ‘Aina Kai is splendid no matter when you visit. But the gardens take on a special charm during Keiki Day. Your little ones will be able to romp through splashing fountains, explore special exhibits, and learn fascinating facts about tropical climate and horticulture. And you’ll love the sheer majesty of the surroundings and the endless number of things to do. With so much to offer, be sure to visit the botanical gardens during Keiki Day while you’re in Kauai.
