wonderful gardens

The Fullerton Arboretum is a must when vising Fullerton. It is a great place to view plants from around the world and a favorite wedding venue.

Relax by taking a stroll through this wonderful arboretum. You'll find a large variety of unusual plants, extraordinary flowers, and special trees. You'll also find birds that come to nest and feed in the different botanical areas. For example, Red-winged Blackbirds, Common Yellowthroats, and Green Herons can be seen in the ponds. Then there are warblers, hummingbirds, egrets, sparrows, finches,... More

Amazing little arboretum, right in Fullerton. Beautiful all times of the year. Lots of programs like gardening and children's exploration. Ponds, trails, benches, yoga people, and other strange and exotic plants and trees from all over.

Such a beautiful, peaceful place to get away from the rush, rush, rush of disneyland. On a recent extended family trip, 23 people, we went to the local farmers market and bought lunch and came to the arboretum and sat outside the park and enjoyed the quiet. After lunch we were amazed at all the different plant varieties and things... More

Pleasant pathways and informative signs on tree/plant species make for a nice time if the weather is good. Easy to park and walk around. Children would enjoy running around here. They have many places under trees with benches and shade, and a little stream and pond with ducks and turtles. We enjoyed it here.

I admit I’m spoiled by the nearby Huntington Gardens and L.A. Arboretum, both of which are much larger and better maintained. Even though the [Cal State University] Fullerton Arboretum can get dry and dusty during the summer, it is still a great place to take a stroll, work on your nature photography skills or just relax. The grounds are divided... More

We took our 83 year old mother and her personal scooter to visit the gardens and we all enjoyed the variety of trees, plants and community gardens. It is a peaceful spot with benches for sitting and soaking in many aspects of nature.

Great place to relax in the afternoon. Closes earlier than a park, but has more garden charm and shade too. Bring a picnic and enjoy the animals in the pond.
