Do you have a sanctuary?
A place where you can unwind, clear your head, feel at peace…and breathe?
Maybe it’s watching the waves crash along the shores of a beach…or lazily sitting on a porch swing watching the day go by…or listening to your favorite tunes driving along an empty stretch of highway…
For me, I find peace at the Fullerton Arboretum, the largest botanical garden in Orange County boasting 26 acres of over 4,000 diverse plants divided into four sections: Cultivated, Woodlands, Mediterranean and Desert. Located on the northeast corner of the Cal State Fullerton campus, it’s a natural wonderland in the heart of the city.
Wondering what to do at The Fullerton Arboretum?
Here are a few suggestions:
- Explore and learn about the flora and fauna.
- Take one of many classes provided including Urban Farming, Composting, Yoga and Bird Watching.
- Add to your garden! Buy a new plant at the Potting Shed.
- Take a nature walk.
- Lay out a blanket and read a book.
- Go on a photo safari!
- Get married! (Or any other special event you’d like to have here!)
- Bring your family for a picnic or a day of fun among nature. There’s a special “Children’s Garden” where kids can be entertained for hours.
- Be enchanted by the turtles, butterflies, rabbits, herrons, lizards, ducks and koi fish.
- If you’re a student, study by the lake or maybe take a nap on a grassy knoll.
- Take that special someone here! It’s a perfect setting for a romantic stroll down those meandering paths 😉
I come to the arboretum to enjoy the stunning scenery around me, to take time for myself and to let my camera have some fun! 🙂
So without further ado, please join me as I take a stroll through the jewel of North Orange County, the Fullerton Arboretum.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our stroll through this beautiful botanical garden. If you’re ever in Orange County and looking for a little escape, this gem is a delight and SO worth the visit!
The Fullerton Arboretum is located at: 1900 Associated Rd, Fullerton, CA 92831
