We went here after seeing a picture on FB. We are so glad we spent few hours here. Its an amazing place to visit to see the flowers. We enjoy photography so it was an amazing site to see and enjoy Fees are reasonable. many kids activities. There were several school trips when we visited. Would visit again.

Visited with my boyfriend and 2 friends on a Saturday in the middle of April. The flower fields are beautiful! Great place to go on a date during the day and take lots of pictures. It costs $12 to get in for adults. Parking was free. Also, there is a stand by the exit where they serve strawberry shakes and... More

Tried to see the flower fields, but NO parking places. We decided that for $12/person it wasn't worth it. They look beautiful from the road!

Mid April is the best time to visit this vibrant place. Enjoy the beauty of ranunculus while it's in full bloom. Just few minutes off 5 fwy, exit Palomar Airport go east and turn left on Paseo del Norte. Parking lot is on your right next to Armstrong Garden center and outlet. Parking is free I recommend to go early... More

On Easter Sunday, I went especially to hear the Bayou Brothers Zydeco group perform. It was so crowded that I just drove up to Armada Dr./Legoland entrance (left @1st light past huge flower flag East on Palomar Dr) and parked along the street above the fields. I got a free Cajun concert (the sound travels up) while viewing the magical... More

What a nice place to spend a morning, strolling through the gardens and enjoying the sights. Take a friend and walk the fields. Just a beautiful place.

Stopped by the flower fields to see the massive fields of ranunculus and enjoy the day. We didn't take the tractor tour because we like to walk. It is a very nice area for a leisure stroll but don't miss the extra green houses. They have orchids, poinsettias, roses and geraniums growing under care and in the refreshment areas. There... More

Since few of us live on farms these days, I'm sure we don't often see how things are grown for market nor do we see things as visually stunning as the Carlsbad Flower Fields. Appreciation for the transient nature of living things combined with the breathtaking scenery are all the motivation one needs to see this attraction year after year.... More
