Although it is not large, sequestered between the 57 Fwy and the CSUF campus, this gem is worth a stop. There are many native California plants, shady groves, a large pond with visiting ducks, a store to buy seeds and plants and an expansive lawn to rent for events such as weddings. Well worth the stop.

What a treat to find such a lovely, peaceful place in the midst of a busy city. My friend and I strolled through the quiet paths last fall and enjoyed a relaxing morning.

It was a very warm day, but so worth the trip here! Get a map of the arboretum so you will know what area you are walking through. This location is 6.2 acres of pure beauty! Whether you are interested in the lush wetlands, a forest, more of a tropical area, even a desert setting, you will find it all... More

Beautiful setting for outdoor wedding and reception when the weather is good. Only drawback is the restrooms...need a little upgrade.

The Arboretum is located on the Cal State Fullerton Campus but has its own parking facility As one would expect, there are numerous plants, displayed by type and favored environment, along with a man-made waterfall and a stream that runs through it. Traffic can be an issue in the morning when the students are coming to classes in the beginning... More

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
