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.

I was visiting from northern Ca and was pleasantly surprised to have found the arboretum. Be sure to wear sunscreen and bring water if you visit in the warmer months. It's a nice venue for a wedding, an outing for a walk or a relaxing place to sit on a bench and read a book. If you are a plant... More

I have been going to the Green Scene for 20 years. Missed last year and just got back from it today. It was terrible. The amount of vendors is way down, The Potting Shed used to be my first stop as it was absolutely stuffed with unusual plants, lots of vegetables and lots of natives. There used to be a... More
