Fullerton Arboretum

Visit a former orchard now morphed into a leafy paradise

Removed from Likes

Thriving on land that once was the site of an orange grove, this parcel on the north end of the Cal State Fullerton campus is the largest botanical garden in Orange County. Developed with huge input and fundraising from CSU Fullerton students, the arboretum is a lovely place to stroll among more than 4,000 plants, and watch ducks paddle about in the garden’s ponds and streams. Visit collections devoted to woodland, desert, and Mediterranean plant species, as well as extensive cultivated gardens, a new orchard, and new wildflower section.

If you’re feeling more energetic, consider joining a guided nature tour, or visit the 1894 Heritage House, a tidy Victorian-era cottage open on weekends and staffed by docents dressed in period attire.
