This is a non-profit botanical garden situated on 26 gorgeous acres of the California State University Fullerton. Botanical collections are sectioned into zones: the temperate zone, the tropical zone and the arid zone. There is a rare fruit grove featuring subtropical fruits like cherimoyas, kiwis, papayas, guavas and rare citrus varieties. The Children's Garden is the site for educational programs and hands-on fun. Also on the grounds is the Heritage House, an Eastlake Victorian cottage built in 1894 by Dr. George C. Clark, an early Fullerton physician, as his home and office. There is a lot of nature and a little bit of history here, making for a wonderful outing. Although admission is free, a voluntary donation is suggested.

Though it is a little small one has to understand it is run mostly by volunteers and is attached to a local cal state. Overall job place to take pictures, relax, and bring the kids. (Also has 2 little museums, and a large potting store).

On Saturday and Sunday, the open a plant sales area which specializes in varieties which area commercial nuseries don't offer. We found several interesting plants to add to our garden at very reasonable prices.
We plan to return soon. Every visit is different because of seasonal changes.
This place is a very nice getaway. There are tons of trees, plants, ducks and beautiful flowers. Just make sure to take some old shoes because the dirt picks up. Great place to have a picnic with a loved one over by the mini lake.
This is an Italian Renaissance style home that was built in 1915 and belonged to Walter Muckenthaler. The grandiose design
