The organization operates on three paths: maintenance, capital improvements, and centennial events. Friends of Liliuokalani Gardens operates with a written Memorandum of Understanding with the County of Hawaii Parks and Recreation Department.
Among the major goals of the organization are: to promote beauty through ornamental horticulture, floriculture, and arboriculture; to develop a program of education; to improve and advance the aesthetic and physical beauty of Hilo; to disseminate information in the fields of ornamental horticulture, floriculture, arboriculture, and botany; and to develop relationships with other non-profit public gardens in North America.
Dedicated to improving and maintaining a 24-acre cultural landscape, which is nearing the centennial of construction (1917 & 1918) and centennial of opening to the public (1919).
Events are planned throughout the centennial years to celebrate Lili`uokalani, the Queen and her Legacy.
