The Fullerton Arboretum in one of my favorite places to explore with the kids. It is never crowded, free, easily accessible and such a great adventure for everyone.
The main purpose of the Fullerton Arboretum is to provide their visitors the opportunity to learn about plants, but for families with young kids this place becomes a fantastic natural playground: beautiful trails, weird looking plants everywhere, lots of places to hide, large trees to climb. And lots of wildlife: we saw tons of lizards, butterflies, all kinds of birds, and blue dragonflies. Also, the pond has lots of turtles swimming around and large red fish. It is such a great outdoor adventure!
