Flower Fields in Bloom Near Your San Diego Home
San Diego comes alive in Spring with color and right now is the perfect time to venture into one of San Diego’s most beautiful treasures – the Flower Fields. Located at Carlsbad Ranch, residents who live in San Diego (and beyond) enjoy this yearly tradition of local beauty. As the weeks pass, more and more flowers will appear until the fields are in full bloom.
Covering 50 acres, this six week spectacle will create memories to last all year. The garden welcome visitors of all ages and are open from 9a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday through May 13th and really are a must-see if you live in San Diego.
Today’s fields were planted by the dedicated Luther Gage, a San Diego grower who started planting flower seeds more than 85 years ago. From ranunculus to gladiolus , Mr. Gage planted every color imaginable! The Flower Fields are full of interesting adventures, including the Miniature Rose Garden, with the Rose Walk of Fame, the Carlsbad Mining Company, a Sweet Pea Maze, Historic Poinsettia Display, American Flag of Flowers, and Santa’s Playground.
This year is the first in fifteen where the color patterns have been changed, so prepare to be surprised if you return year after year. An Arts & Crafts Fair will be held on April 15th. Tickets are $11 for Adults, $10 for seniors, $6 for Children (3-10), and free for children under two.
