CSUN’s Orange Grove is located in the southeast side of campus, behind the Valley Performing Arts Center, Jeanne Chisholm Hall and Monterey Hall.
Featuring more than 400 orange trees, this campus spot harks back to the San Fernando Valley’s heavily agricultural past. The Orange Grove is not just enjoyed by CSUN students, faculty and staff, but also outside guests.
In addition to the hundreds of trees, the five-acre Orange Grove is also home to a botanical pond featuring a 270-foot stream and a natural spring well, that provides a home to wildlife such as red-eared slider turtles, koi and goldfish and ducks.
Students, faculty, staff and the public come here to enjoy quiet time for relaxation, with many taking the opportunity to do homework, read or feed the ducks.
Its pathways are wheelchair accessible and well-lit for nighttime strolls.
