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.

It is perfect for photographers looking for a free place to shoot, and for kids to run around! Parking and admission are free!

not much to write home about though. Maybe i was there at the wrong time, it was nothing special, and everything seemed so dry and dead. Had hoped to see lots of flowers and names of flowers, but didn't see much.

The Fullerton Arboretum has matured beautifully and is a destination for the whole family with much to do from guided tours, yoga in the park, the potting shed, farmers' market. Each March there is fabulous tomato and pepper sale that includes many heirloom and hard-to-find varieties. All of these are started from seeds that are planted by volunteers. Don't miss... More

The Fullerton Arboretum is a beautiful setting for strolling around and reading and simply watching birds and plants, and passing the time. But, if you want the best event, go to the Green Scene. This year it is on April 12 and 13. It is a gardener's heaven. You can get tomatoes and cucumbers and peppers, and pumpkins and squash,... More

I wasn't very impressed with the town of Fullerton CA until I visited the Fullerton Arboretum. This place had a suggested donation as opposed to an entry fee. There were lots of people visiting but the place was so large that it didn't feel crowded. This place exceeded my expectations! During my visit, cacti were in bloom. I never saw... More
