The Fullerton Arboretum is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon - with friends or family. There are lots of trails throughout the property. And it's fun just to meander through the various gardens. It's a great place for photography. There aren't really formal flower gardens here. However there are succulents, a Mediterranean garden and other types as well. Both... More

A great place to take a walk and talk and take photographs. My photography class spent the day here amongst the fkora and fauna. I was a little disappointed because I was expecting more well taken cared of plants. Maybe the drought was really bad that they couldn't handle it. There re ducks, birds and other animals roaming around the... More

This place is great to walk around and enjoy some nature in the concrete jungle. Relatively quite considering location and peaceful. Great for individuals and families.

Although it is not large, sequestered between the 57 Fwy and the CSUF campus, this gem is worth a stop. There are many native California plants, shady groves, a large pond with visiting ducks, a store to buy seeds and plants and an expansive lawn to rent for events such as weddings. Well worth the stop.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Easy access to all of the venues in the area and right by the freeway although you do not... More

What a treat to find such a lovely, peaceful place in the midst of a busy city. My friend and I strolled through the quiet paths last fall and enjoyed a relaxing morning.

It was a very warm day, but so worth the trip here! Get a map of the arboretum so you will know what area you are walking through. This location is 6.2 acres of pure beauty! Whether you are interested in the lush wetlands, a forest, more of a tropical area, even a desert setting, you will find it all... More
