A sign that spring has arrived are the patches of lovely bluebonnets in bloom across the Lone Star State.

 Bluebonnet season is typically late March through early April. If it’s been a warm winter, the bluebonnets can bloom early and if there’s been a lot of late freezes, the bluebonnets will usually be late. Texas experienced historic cold temperatures in 2021 so we are still seeing some later blooms.

 For many, taking pictures with the state flower is a family tradition. Luckily, Arlington residents don't have to travel far from home to find a safe location for the perfect picture. Bluebonnets and other wildflowers can be found in public parks across The American Dream City!

5 Parks to see Bluebonnets:

  1. River Legacy Park – located at 701 Northwest Green Oaks Boulevard
  2. Randol Mill Park – located at 1901 W. Randol Mill Road
  3. Thora Hart Park – located at 3510 West Green Oaks Boulevard
  4. Veterans Park – located at 3600 West Arkansas Lane
  5. Village Creek Historical Area – located at 2605 Dottie Lynn Pkwy

Stay Safe

Because of safety concerns, the Texas Department of Public Safety urges people not to take photos with the wildflowers along busy highways.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind during your photo session:

  • Obey traffic and parking signs
  • Watch for snakes, ants and other wildlife
  • Avoid trampling the wildflowers
