The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is a unique 127-acre botanical garden and historical site located in what was the heart of the historic Rancho Santa Anita in the city of Arcadia.
The County of Los Angeles recognizes that we occupy land originally and still inhabited and cared for by the Tongva, Tataviam, Serrano, Kizh, and Chumash Peoples
Our mission is to cultivate our natural, horticultural and historic resources for learning, enjoyment and inspiration.
Our vision is to be one of the world's truly great arboreta and botanic gardens--the garden that best reflects Southern California's distinct climate, community and openness to new ideas.
We're here to answer your questions.
