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

Went here to get exercise and fresh air and the arboretum is excellent. There were a lot of flowering cactus and trees and the pathways are well laid out to meander through. This is well worth the suggested admission fee

Always a joy to visit with flowers galore and a special treat-a flowering corpse flower! This plant is fascinating to observe and smell! Spring is coming early and everything appears to be flowering or ready to flower. Well worth the visit.

I live across the street from CSUF and have enjouyed the peace and serentiy (occasionally broken up by the cheers from the baseball stadium!) of the Arboretum for the last 17 years. I used to go there with my toddler daughter and explore and play in the "Kids Garden." Then walk over to the pond and enjoy the ducks and... More

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.
