When I first visited the the field of flowers I was blown away by the vast array or colors and teh size of the field. Then I heard that the field was 5 miles long at one time before development moved in. Too bad! Still a gorgeous place to visit.

I remember the flower fields from decades ago when they were flower fields and not a parking lot for tour buses. The ranunculus are breathtaking and always will be, but it's painful to see them as a tourist spot

When the flower fields are in bloom it is is the most spectacular sight. Color everywhere. Great escape from the city.

We had walked around to all corners of this Flower Fields. It is such a beautiful picture. Thanks to all of hard works of everyone working there and whoever has such of an... More

Wonderfully maintained garden with verities of flowers. Entry fee is small and one can spend a couple of hours in this garden. Nothing much in this place.

We have been going to the FLOWER FIELDS every year for the last 25 years and it just never disappoints. It's heaven for flower lovers and gardeners. Who wouldn't love this abundance and beauty. A must see from March to Mother's Day. Easter services. Champion rose Garden with varieties from around the world. Special themed gardens. Santa's village from Big... More

The best place to see the flower fields is from the road that runs past the top of the fields. You get a great view and you can park there and see them FREE instead of paying to go in.

There is something about this huge expanse of ranunculus blooming in all shades as well as in discrete color bands that rivals the show the Dutch put on with the tulips in springtime. Because of the magnitude of the area (over 40 acres) and the ability to view it up close this is a wonderful venue for all ages. Living... More

This is a one of a kind attraction in SoCal, as you won't find too many flower fields in the area. A great place to spend the day.

Some say THERE IS NOT GOD, well they have not been to see the Flower Fields in Carlsbad. The city of Carlsbad has saved the land they are on. They are truly a sight to see. So many colors, so many volunteers help make them so special. When visiting Carlsbad, CA (not NM) do stop by. Plus there is an... More
