Take yourself out of the ordinary and spend a few hours in one of nature’s wonders; a place where kids can run and adults can linger. This 50 acres of extraordinary color, better known as The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch®, is in bloom on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offers a special nursery, garden, and gift shop by Armstrong Garden Centers in addition to festivals throughout the season.
Not only does The Flower Fields provide its visitors with 50 acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus, it also sets the stage for fantastic special events. In addition to the Ranunculus, we have three acres of roses, orchids, sweet pea blossoms, petunias and an ocean-view. Add to that our many family fun attractions, seasonal special events and the wedding and gala barn and you get the perfect place to make magical memories. See our Fact Sheet for attraction and special event details.
The Flower Fields are more than just beautiful fields of color; they provide a stunning backdrop for your wedding, corporate gathering or other special event. Our Paul Ecke, Jr. Barn nestled among the flowers can accommodate up to 200 guests in a venue that offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. March through May are the most spectacular months for an event because the ranunculus flowers are in bloom. However, the barn venue and gardens at The Flower Fields are open throughout the year (January- December) to accommodate you for your special events.
