UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden

California's Central Valley is a land of extremes. Over the year, temperatures can range from around 14 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit—and rainfall is only around 19 inches annually. Yet for all of these challenges, UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden has managed to grow 22,000 trees and plants, arranged by geographic areas that take visitors on a colorful trip around the world.

  • Size: more than 100 acres filled with demonstration gardens, plant collections, and sprawling landscapes
  • Eye Catcher: the vine-covered pergolas, decorative paving, and fountains at The Arboretum Terrace Garden and Lois Crowe Patio
  • Don't Miss: plant sales at the Arboretum Teaching Nursery
  • Permanent mainstays: 200-year-old valley oaks and pines
  • Hidden Gem: diverse wildlife including dozens of bird species
  • Special Programs: folk-music jam sessions, gardening lessons, and free public tours on the weekends
  • Where to Eat: spread out a picnic blanket near the west end of the Peter J. Shields Grove
  • Pro Tip: the sights change with the seasons; check online to see what's currently in bloom
