Fullerton Arboretum

If you are looking for a unique place to spend your day, consider the Fullerton Arboretum. Located at 1900 Associated Rd., near Yorba Linda Blvd., this 26-acre botanical garden showcases plants from around the world. Walking paths wind through cultivated grounds, past streams and waterfalls, and the 1894 Victorian Heritage House. After a relaxing day of exploration, you will want to go back and visit the arboretum's educational exhibits.

This unique Fullerton CA park offers activities that are sure to please the whole family. You can enjoy birdwatching, fishing, and other activities. Its warm climate makes it a wonderful place for families to spend a day together. Parking is plentiful, too. The Arboretum is open on weekends, with special summer hours. You can even purchase a picnic lunch to enjoy while you explore the park.

Located on the campus of Cal State Fullerton, the Fullerton Arboretum is the largest botanical garden in Orange County. The gardens were created with student input. There are more than four thousand plants on display. Visitors can explore cultivated gardens, orchards, and a wildflower section. And they can even learn about endangered plants and the city's agricultural heritage. All this is possible thanks to the arboretum's educational programs and volunteer efforts.
