Raleigh Sunflower Field ~ 2021

The sunflowers at Dix Park started blooming last week. The combination of rain and sun in June and July have resulted in a lush crop this year. I expect the field to be filled with blooms by this week and in peak bloom by the weekend.  

Visitors are welcome to check out the sunflowers all month long from dawn to dusk. The fields can be a little muddy if it has been raining and it is always a good idea to wear a hat and bring some bottled water. There isn’t much shade out there and it gets super hot under the July sun!

The sunflower field at Dix Park is located off Hunt Drive near the soccer fields and the historic cemetery. The best way to find them is to enter the park on Hunt Drive off Western Boulevard. Once on Hunt Drive you will quickly notice signs for parking in a large soccer field and gravel parking lot on your right. You can park there and easily access the field from the gravel lot.
