Every year Southern California welcomes in the spring season with a very special attraction - The Flower Fields® at Carlsbad Ranch one of the most unique attractions in Southern California and an annual rite of passage into spring; drawing more than 100,000 visitors annually. The Flower Fields® is a 50-acre dazzling rainbow of beautiful ranunculus flowers set on a hillside that overlooks the striking Carlsbad, California coastline.
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! In addition to the vivid bands of color, we invite you to come and enjoy our tractor driven wagon rides, and stroll through a 1,500 square foot greenhouse filled with world famous Ecke poinsettias. Be sure and navigate through the pathways of our sweet pea maze and enjoy the many various themed gardens. The 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. We provide free parking and restroom facilities.
Please note that The Flower Fields® is a working ranch with dirt pathways, so we urge to you wear comfortable clothes and good walking shoes. Most importantly, don't forget to bring your cameras, because there are sure to be many wonderful photo opportunities!
