Fodor's Review

Wander through a re-created tropical forest, a South Africa landscape, or the Australian outback at this arboretum. One highlight is the tropical greenhouse, with carnivorous-looking orchids and a pond full of brilliantly colored goldfish. The house and stables of the eccentric real-estate pioneer Lucky Baldwin are well preserved and worth a visit. Kids will love the many peacocks and waterfowl that roam the property. The most recent addition is a water-harvesting farm, where tall stalks of rainbow corn and vines of passion fruit grow in abudance. To get here, head east on I–210 just past Pasadena, exit in Arcadia on Baldwin Avenue and go south, and you will soon see the entrance.
