“Stunning Display of Flower Fields”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have returned again to this wonderful place on the outskirts of Canby, Oregon. The owners welcome everyone to visit and enjoy the bounty of Dahlias in all their varied glory. There is limited parking close to the main picnic tables but a lot of parking is available on access roads cut divide the property. The walking is safe but not paved so plan to wear good foot ware. There is limited food during their yearly festival (Aug-Sep) but you won't go hungry. The display of flowers more than makes up for any lacking.....as the variety and expanse of flower fields is a truly great annual treat. Even if you have a passing interest in flowers, this visit will impress you with the best Nature has to offer.

“A garden lover's dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I caught wind of this event on line and instantly knew I needed to go. If you've ever been to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and like it--you'll like this. The fields are smaller than the tulip festival but the sheer variety and beauty of the dahlias make up for the lack of size. I suggest you pack a picnic for before or after you wander through the fields, it's such a serene place to enjoy a meal. Also, they don't have any food sales on site (besides candy bars in the gift shop). The only bathrooms are port-a-potties.

“Fields of Flowers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

If you have never seen how flowers are raised, this is the place to go. Rows and Rows of more kinds of Dahlias than you can imagine. Every one more beautiful than the next. Pack a lunch, there are picnic tables where you can enjoy the ambiance like you will never get in any restaurant. The Entire are of Canby just 20 south of Portland is quite a surprise as it is all farm country where you can buy product, wine and candy. Nice day trip, but you must have your own transportation.

“Beautiful fields of dahlias”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The best part for me is walking thru the vast fields of dahlias in bloom. There are hundreds of varieties and then visit the underground displays showing cut dahlias. You can purchase bulbs for delivery at planting time.
