A wedding brought us to the Arboretum this day. Our first visit and we were impressed how the grounds are well maintained. Fortunately the event was under a covered patio as it was quite warm. You should be aware that if you attend a wedding or formal event here the parking lot is dirt as are the walking paths to... More

One of the best kept secrets in Orange County. They have local events and the grounds are well maintained.

We had a great day just walking around and enjoying nature at it's best. I am sorry we didn't pack a picnic lunch to enjoy. The trails are well kept and there are great markers explaining what the different trees were and a little history behind them. What a great day we had!

Parking is right in front of the entrance. The donation pole can easily be missed if you pay too much attention to the small waterfall at the entrance. The indoor locations where closed during regular hours without a sign to explain why. Me and the wife walked for about 3 hours to see the whole place. The variety of trees... More

The arboretum is a great park to walk around with family, on a date or with friends. The plants are well maintained and there are benches throughout the park for resting/lounging.

Great selection of plants and trees from different climate zones. Particularly good display of cactus plants and other drought-tolerant landscaping ideas. Paths are fairly level and easy to negotiate with strollers. Exhibits are kid-friendly. Well worth the recommended contribution of $5.00/person. There is no set admission price.

Over the years I have been on 'The Rainbow Tour' with local kids groups. It is held in spring each year. Every tour had been different - based on the knowledge of the tour guides. Kids get to go home with a seedling in a cup to grow. After the tour you have time to walk around and enjoy the... More

There are a ton of plants here that are varied & amazing. From redwoods to palms to succulents to flowers....wow. The trails are hard packed dirt & flat for people of all ages. There are so many things to see & I don't think 1 visit was enough at all. Watch for wildlife. I saw a number of squirrels, a... More

This is a beautiful arboretum. Kid friendly, but here are two lakes parents need to be aware of. There are lots of walking paths, community gardens, a historical home and many examples of plants. Plants are grouped by geographical origins.

I love this arboretum. Not only can you walk around and enjoy the plants, but you can also visit the history structures and learn about Fullerton history.
