Sun Yat Sen Park

A peaceful park honors the place where this Chinese revolutionary grew up.

A Chinese revolutionary who helped overthrow the Qing dynasty, Sun Yat Sen was the first president of the Republic of China.

Yet few people know that the “father of modern China” spent his formative years living with his older brother on a farm in Upcountry Maui.

Today, a peaceful wayside park in Keokea celebrates his ties with the island.

Marked with statues of Dr. Sun, Chinese lions, and an ornate gateway, visitors can learn about this slice of history, or just meander through the small meditation garden and enjoy the spectacular Upcountry views.
