Come and explore the beauty and wonder of the Arboretum!

Open daily, from dawn til dusk

The Arboretum is a 35-acre botanical garden with professionally planned gardens, tree plantings, and water features. The many pathways connect the gardens and lead you to cascading water features and a 9/11 memorial. The numerous teak benches make this facility an ideal spot to take a walk or just sit and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the setting.

Drive up to the gate and wait for it to open.

The Arboretum is home to the Remembrance Walkway and Garden to honor those who lost their lives and those whose lives have been forever altered by the tragic events of the September 11th attack on America. The September 11th Memorial features a stunning rotating granite sculpture of the earth surrounded by bronze plaques with the names of the 44 Orange County residents who perished that day.
