Five acres of sunflowers are planted and beginning to sprout at Dorothea Dix Park. Since this enchanting field of flowers debuted last summer, the Raleigh community and beyond have been anticipating the return of this special sight. As we wait for the blooms to appear, the City of Raleigh has some important information to share about visiting the Dix Park Sunflower Field. Knowing this information before you go will hopefully facilitate an exceptional experience for everyone. The sunflowers are expected to bloom at the end of June through the middle of July. The Dix Park Sunflower Field is for everyone to enjoy and park guests can help ensure that the sunflowers remain beautiful for the whole community. While walking around the sunflower field, visitors are asked to stay on defined paths, keep children and pets from straying into the sunflowers, and to not pick the flowers.
Located off Hunt Drive, the sunflower field at Dix Park is located near the soccer fields and the historic cemetery.
