  • Beautiful Place for a Wedding I have yet to see the entirety of this arboretum, but it's a beautiful setting for a wedding. I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of a member of my family-in-law in October of 2016. The event was held under the vine-draped pergola, just behind the Victorian house. Despite the recently hot weather, the arboretum provided a cool breeze and plentiful. Across a large grassy field to the North of the house is a large Potting Shed which has been converted to a community center and was the stage for the Wedding Reception. It was plenty large enough to accommodate the guests and festivities. The look and feel was akin to that of Bilbo Baggins 111th Birthday party, portrayed by Peter Jackson in Lord of the Rings I look forward to my next visit
  • I love the Fullerton Arboretum. It's quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. However, lately the finding Pok√©mon players have over taken it. Could we share the arbo on separate days?
  • An Urban Getaway that's not big situated next to CSUF. (Ironically, when I was here for grad school, I never came here) Parking is free in the gravel lot. So what can you expect? Different sections including desert section with dry tolerant plants like cactus, children's area with a smelling section (look for the chocolate plant that was planted by girlscouts), a pond with turtles and fish, also look for a big tree there where kids can try climbing. Just don't fall. Just off the kids area I think is a shed that has a guide who sells cold bottled water $1 and some snacks. Outside of the shed is some clippings and seeds for sale. Buy some, so you can help keep this place on going for later generations. Donation and volunteers is needed here. So if you have the time or money, you can make a difference. Almost every bench will capture some shade, otherwise it's very hot here if you decide to come in the afternoon. You can quickly finish this place in about 30 minutes or just leisurely stroll through in about an hour. There is a bathroom close to the entrance. There are educational tours always ongoing for school students so there's a chance you might have to keep your voice down.
  • Such a wondrous place to see an assortment of plant species gathered from all sorts of locations; everything from cacti, roses, bamboo to lemon trees. Free parking, with a suggested donation for the upkeep! Can definitely get lost in nature with the surrounding college and city on the outskirts.
  • This is a beautiful sanctuary where you can hang out alone or with friends. Walk around to enjoy the copious amounts of plant varietals. Cute turtles and bunnies roam around. Be sure to wear sunblock!
