A small arboretum with a nice collection of mediterranean flora, fruit trees, figs, and the back side has a bit of a chaotic feel, lots of interesting climbers on the fence. Informative signs for a few displays about local plants. A lot of nice relaxing...More

Next to CSUF, the arboretum displays different varieties of trees and plants from different world regions. Shades are plenty when walking by giant trees. Also, there is an activity center and information desk to ask about workshops.

It is very relaxing to walk the grounds of the Arboretum. There are benches scattered throughout to sit and relax and enjoy nature. The Arboretum has great plant events during the year that you shouldn't miss.

Surrounded by a freeway, busy streets and a college campus, the Fullerton Arboretum is a welcome oasis in the middle of a noisy, crowded and hectic area. Admission and parking are free. The arboretum is laid out well, 26 acres of meandering paths featuring a...More

Tucked in the middle of noisy, crowded and over developed Fullerton, is a lovely sanctuary filled with blooming trees (smell the orange blossoms, heavenly !), shrubs, native California desert plants, gardens, birds and beauty. Human studies have shown that as little as 20 minutes spent...More
