The Arboretum used to be very green , clean and full of flowers and fruits. Well, because of the water drought, the place is brown, less colorful, sad, and with few small fruits. I was very excited to show the place to my 5 year old nephew who just immigrated to this beautiful country, but was disappointed as soon as... More

This was a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony. Although it was hot (July) there was shade provided by the trees. The staff was there to point out where to go. Wish I had more time to check out the grounds, but it was lovely from what I saw.

I had been meaning to visit this place for years so when we finally decided to do it I was excited to see what it was like. It turned out to be very unkempt with dead vegetation lying all over the place and was mostly dusty with lack of water. Golf courses all around can get water to stay green,... More

A small arboretum in size. Not much bigger than a park. Nice for a couple hours of strolling. It is no comparison to the Los Angeles County Arboretum.

Cal State Fullerton has nice gardens overall - through their campus. The Arboretum is a bit out of the way and could have a better entrance location and fencing - but quite nice inside.

My husband, Ray Canfield serves as a volunteer docent He does a very good job. And I enjoy going with him sometimes to see the new flowers and the trees. A visit is always very educational and interesting. And it also is a very relaxing place to visit and be refreshed.

Every year I go to see the cactus flowers in the spring. You will be amazed at their cactus garden and all the other beautiful plants and trees . Spend some quiet time on a bench by the lake.

I have been year this summer. It is placed near the Fullerton school and the enter is free. I am not used to visit this kind of parks in America, but in Italy we don't have something like this. Moreover, the place is very suggestive and it presents a lot of different species of plants. Very good. If you have... More

I always love stopping at the Arboretum when in Fullerton! It's old Victorian and orange trees reminds me of growing up just down the street surrounded by orange groves. And the smell of redwoods...priceless!
