at Turtle Bay Exploration Park
McConnell Arboretum & Botanical Gardens are located on the north side of the Turtle Bay Exploration Park campus, across the Sundial Bridge. Initially, supporters of the Redding Arboretum, one of four organizations that merged to create Turtle Bay Exploration Park, helped drive the development of a series of botanical gardens. Turtle Bay inherited and embraced the plan to develop the site as seen today.
