This approximately 6.5 acre public park, which was constructed in 1843, is surrounded by a trimmed mock orange hedge and contains: a large cascading fountain; a number of banyan, flowering shower, and Hawaiian “fish poison” trees; a pedestrian sidewalk; and an expansive lawn area. Thomas Square is significant for its association with the nineteenth century political history of the Kingdom of Hawaii.
