A group of friends strolled around the Arboretum before and after lunch. It is connected to the university campus, so there were plenty of students studying or walking. There were also quite a few stroller Moms! It isn't as well kept up as major gardens--mainly...More

Nestled right inside Cal State Fullerton. A great place to visit with young children as it is never crowded and small with lots of shade. There is a lake and you can see fish and turtles which young children will also enjoy.

We visited on a hot day, probably not ideal. Lots of cacti but also other areas in this compact botanic garden. Good for a walk, but perhaps not on a very hot day. The original doctor's house was interesting.
