It’s bluebonnet time! Are you looking for spots to enjoy bluebonnets and take photos? Watch out for rattlesnakes, fire ants, bees, scorpions, and/or other hurtful vermin. Watch where you step, stand, and sit. Please share more areas via a comment and I’ll keep this post updated!
Oak Point Park
Chadwick Stelzl posted two great bluebonnet photos to his Instagram account from Oak Point Park on March 20, 2017.
Legacy Office Park
Legacy Dr (between the Tollway and Sam Rayburn), Plano
- JCPenney headquarters: The east Hill has been completely demolished for construction. The west Hill has some construction on it and there is only one direction to take photos now. Luckily, it is the direction towards the sunset. Blue Bonnets are out, but they are small and not as nice as last year. (2017)
- Frito-Lay Headquarters
- You can park at the gated entrances and walk onsite – the surrounding “rolling hills” are covered with bluebonnets & other wildflowers
Spring Creek Area
- There’s also some in Plano off of the trails. Cuter & Springcreek. Or Independence & Spring Creekish area. Again along that trail. I haven’t seen any this year yet though & the rain will be coming on hard this month.
- “Bluebonnet Trail” in Plano. I just saw some yesterday in the Custer & Spring Creek area.
Headed West from 75, past Watters Creek. The bonnets are on small hills so they even show in the back ground. You have to park on the u turns, but everyone parks there.
Russell Creek Park
Near Fujitso in Richardson
(2016) Richardson, in the NORTHEAST side of Dallas, on the intersection of Shiloh Rd and Research Dr (by the Fujitso Network Communication offices), between Breckenridge Blvd and Lookout Dr.
It’s a huge field with very thick bluebonnet patches. Found off Shiloh and Research Dr by Fujitsu Communications.
426 & Main, Frisco
- 423 and main in Frisco. It is located at Zion Cemetery. There is a beautiful lake in the background and a wire and white fence that runs around it. There is also a dirt road going uphill. Very nice for photographs!
- I went there two years ago. The cemetery was prettier to me than the bluebonnets, but I might have been a lil off on their bloom. Gorgeous location tho!
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church
