The wildflowers of Richardson, Texas used to be Dallas best kept secret for admiring and taking photos of beautiful wildflowers. What makes these so special is the particular array of flowers that bloom here during the Spring. They’re unlike any other you’d find anywhere in or near Dallas. Statewide bluebonnets are typically all the rave but in Dallas-Ft.Worth, it’s the lovely “mix of red corn poppy, corn flower and rocket larkspur.”
Last year, I was lucky enough to experience the spectacular display of wildflowers. I quickly found myself frequenting these beauties often as this location became a popular mini session of mine. Everyone wanted to be captured amongst the luscious, tall and stunning wildflowers. The now, massive crowds that flock here instantly certified this spot as Dallas Best Wildflower Location for Photos in Spring.
Technically, the special array of wildflowers can be found throughout the city of Richardson, Texas. A city just on the outskirts of Dallas. However, the BEST spot can be found nestled inside the quiet neighborhood in Richardson, Crowley Park, where there are long fields rich of these wildflowers.
I send all of my clients to the address, I’m sharing with you below. This spot is alongside my favorite patch and has easy to access streetside parking. My best recommendation for you is to take some time during the weekday or mornings for the opportunity to peacefully capture your wildflower photos without the crowds.
Address: Crowley Park – 2400 Lookout Drive, Garland, Texas
(The address mentions the city of Garland which is located on the borderline of Richardson. )
Late March-early April. However, the exact timing varies year by year and is dictated by temperatures and the rainy season.
They typically reach their peak during the first or second week of April. However, they are at it’s healthiest early into the season. Because of the large crowds that now flock here , they last hardly a week in optimal condition due to the amount of people that trample over these beauties.
Within the patches are small pathways and patches that allow you to submerge yourself amongst the wildflowers without causing harm to the blooms. When you make your visit, please admire the wildflowers with great care so as many people as possible can enjoy them also.
I hope you found this post helpful in easily locating Dallas best wildflower location for photos this spring.
