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 start, 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.
