The fullerton arboretum is a great place to enjoy the beautiful OC weather! With plenty of walkways greenery, flowers and sites, like gazebos, archways, and water features. 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

First time visitor. I was impressed, the grounds are well maintained. It's a nice oasis with a couple of ponds and a stream. Some huge trees, a small rose garden, and community garden, and a Victorian house. Meandering paths with benches well placed for sitting and absorbing the calm. Seems like a popular place without being crowded. Birders and photographers... More

Lovely place to walk, or sit with a picnic lunch. No entrance fee, but a donation is always welcome. Turtles enjoy visitors to the pond areas, spot them resting on the rocks.

I love taking my camera for a walk here. Afterwards I like to stop and see what they have for sale. They usually have native Californian plants and sometimes there is a farmers market selling produce grown there.

You can't really see anything from the surrounding streets but once you walk into Fullerton's Arboretum you're amazed at the beautiful landscapes. They've sectioned off different areas to replicate areas around the world. It's relaxing and educational. There are often events and plant sales as well as gardening and cooking classes. Get in for a small donation. Visit their website... More

A very pretty, calming oasis in the city of Fullerton. Offers periodic plant classes and sales. Mostly just nice to walk around and enjoy a break from hubbub.
