It's the first day of Spring! So, it's time to start thinking about those annual Bluebonnet photos. While there are lots of little patches that pop up all over the Metroplex, these are some of the best spots to see those beautiful blue blooms.


Ennis

Bluebonnet Trails

Known as the "Official Bluebonnet City of Texas," Ennis showcases over 40 miles of mapped driving Bluebonnet Trails sponsored by the Ennis Garden Club each year from April 1-30. So, there's plenty of space out there to take photos with bluebonnets! They also have a Bluebonnet Trails Festival that takes place from April 12-14 this year where you'll find a Farmers Market, Wine Wander, Kid-Friendly Activities, and Live Music.

Fort Worth

Tandy Hills Natural Area

Tandy Hills is a 160-acre indigenous remnant of Fort Worth prairie located in the heart of Fort Worth and has an incredible show of spring wildflowers each year. Take the Wildflower Loop trail to ensure some good bluebonnet shots.

Frisco

Warren Park (at Freedom Meadow)

At the Warren Sports Complex off Eldorado Parkway you can find a blanket of bluebonnets each year. The Frisco Garden Club scatters seeds near the September 11 memorial and the Frisco Fire Department waters the entire area ensuring an abundant supply of bluebonnets for residents to enjoy.

Grand Prairie

Mira Lagos

Within this Grand Prairie community are the shores of the Joe Pool recreational lake, as well as a series of other lakes, waterways, and a 43-acre linear park. Here you can usually find a patch or two of bluebonnets to snag a cute photo in.

Grapevine

Texan Trail

In Grapevine, take the Texan Trail exit and north of the frontage road on the right-hand side you'll see a beautiful field of bluebonnets (right before you get to Main Street). This is the perfect spot because you're far away from the roads with lots of parking options nearby.

Las Colinas

Las Colinas Blvd

Las Colinas Blvd is basically a bluebonnet trail. Just follow it from Hwy 161 to Northwest Highway and you're pretty much guaranteed to see some great bluebonnet patches. Just be safe when parking and walking to the bluebonnets!

Irving Convention Center & Toyota Music Factory

If you want an urban background to your bluebonnet shot, this is it! Even with all the construction happening in the area, as of last year, the bluebonnets were still finding room to grow in the open field near the Convention Center and Toyota Music Factory. Plus, after you're done taking pictures, you can go grab some food and drink at the Music Factory!

Lewisville/The Colony

Highway 121

Driving along Highway 121 through Lewisville and The Colony, there are lots of open spaces for bluebonnets to pop up in. So, just keep an eye out on your commute for some patches! Again, because this is a busy roadway, just be careful when parking and walking to the bluebonnets!

Mansfield

Oliver Nature Park

As you walk across the Flood Plain Boardwalk at Oliver Nature Park, you'll find yourself surrounded by a rainbow of seasonal wildflowers, including bluebonnets. This time of year the park is open from 5:00am-9:00pm, so you have plenty of time to snap those photos!

Plano

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve

In the Blackland Prairie areas of the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve you'll find large expanses of wildflowers. The Preserve is open from 5:00am-11:00pm and offers areas for hiking, orienteering, and even has an observation tower giving you a spectacular view of the city.

Bluebonnet Trail

Appropriately named, this trail usually offers large clusters of our State Flower. We recommend parking at the strip mall at Custer and Spring Creek Parkway and hop on the trail from there.
