Flower Fields is a 50-acre rainbow of beautiful ranunculus flowers
set on a hillside that overlooks the striking Carlsbad California
coastline. We are located just off the Interstate 5 Freeway, approximately
halfway between San Diego and Orange County.
A leisurely stroll along the pathways of the flower fields from early
March to early May provides you with the opportunity to experience
colorful bands of ranunculus flowers up close, and to enjoy the breathtaking
view of the Pacific Ocean. You will definitely want to bring a camera!
addition to the vivid bands of color, we invite you to stroll among
our various themed gardens, through our All American Rose Selection
and Walk of Fame gardens, and through Color Project which commissions
nationally recognized artists to use flowers as an art medium and
serves as an innovation for the use of garden color. Stroll through
a 1,500 square foot greenhouse filled with world famous Ecke poinsettias.
Enjoy hundreds of the world’s best selling potted plants in
over twenty rare and unusual varieties.Children of all ages are sure
to enjoy a ride throughout the Flower Fields site on a large wagon
pulled by Antique Tractors that are provided by the Vista Antique
& Steam Engine Museum.
Flower Fields is a great place to bring the family for a day of
picnicking and enjoying our beautiful Southern California weather.
Picnic tables are provided on site for your convenience. Throughout
the season, we also hold a series of Special Events designed to entertain
visitors of all ages.

so we urge to you wear comfortable clothes and good walking shoes.
