UC Davis Arboretum Visitor Map
The UC Davis Arboretum — a small portion of the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden — is home to over 20 different gardens featuring plants from California and countries with similar summer-dry climates across the globe, including Australia, South Africa and the Mediterranean region. Some are demonstration gardens where visitors can learn about best practices in sustainable horticulture, and others feature a single plant group, such as the Peter J. Shields Oak Grove.
The main Arboretum path — a popular 3.5 mile loop that lines the Arboretum Waterway — is a great place to begin your visit, but we also encourage you to explore parts of the Arboretum off this path. The three walking tours you will find on the map, each approximately 1 mile, will introduce you to a more in-depth look at the work we do to inspire human potential to help people and environments thrive. The average visit per loop takes about 45 minutes on foot.
