The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden, located at the center of the iconic Santa Anita Ranch, is a remarkable 127-acre Arcadia museum and botanical park. The arboretum serves as home to a range of plant species gathered around the world, many of which are unique and threatened, as well as historic open-air attractions that represent key milestones in California's history.
The arboretum is also a nature reserve for animals. Besides the well-known peacock, guests will observe kinds of local and migratory birds, water animals, and many small reptile and mammal varieties.
Our goal is to grow our own natural, garden and heritage assets for education, pleasure and encouragement. We aim to capture the special Southern California climate, sociability and inclusiveness of our ideas. The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanical Garden is a stunning 127-acre botanical garden and historic site that incorporates Native American, ranch and end 19th century heritage.
