Splendid gardens fill the surrounding area, Alongside the path to the viewing area are many different types of Samoan plants and trees which are labeled by their Samoan and scientific names. There is also an area for umu demonstrations and coconut husking. A small entrance fee is charged. If there is no one on site to collect the entrance fee, there is an honesty box available where visitors can pay.
