“Small Arboretum Run by Un. of CA, Fullerton”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Relatively small area, perhaps 5 acres, contains a good variety of native habitats with good selection of plants. An interesting water feature flows through the park. Local bird life is good. Park adjacent to student housing with heavy usage. Three dollar donation/person requested, however, funding appears inadequate, as maintenance is lacking.

“Peaceful place with interesting exhibits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

If you like plants, it's fun to visit ithe Arboretum in different seasons and see the changing landscape. There is also a new (small) musuem with changing exhibits; when we visited, it was about the history of civil rights in california.

“A jewel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

One of my favorite places, and not just because I am a CSUF alumnus. It is a wonderful place to "get away from it all". Love the different areas of vegetation and every season is a surprise. They are always improving it, also. They have a great plant sale every weekend with low cost plants--several of my garden plants came from there. They also have great classes and I have taken several. The Victorian Clark House is wonderful. All for a small donation. I also love the Green Scene that is like a fair of plant vendors, held once a year. We try to attend every year.

“A little bit of heaven in Fullerton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Great place to experience Southern California flora. Adjacent to Freeway, but feels a million miles away. Drawbacks: there is a fee for formal photography, during baseball season the adjacent playing field plays really loud music. Fabulous place for weddings. Our daughter's was amazing.
