Spring wildflowers now greeting visitors to City parks and trails
Dallas Park and Recreation has sprung into spring with a bevy of beautiful sights for visitors to the City’s parks and trails. The Park Maintenance Services Division has been working hard to roll out the red (or green) carpet for the thousands of daily users and visitors.
“Every year Mother Nature adds new color to our parks and we use that opportunity to put our best foot forward so that residents have the best experience while visiting our parks and trails,” said Dallas Park and Recreation Assistant Director Oscar Carmona.
Bluebonnets are expected to peak around April 15. Indian paintbrush take over in May and June, and Engelmann’s Daisy, Maximillian sunflower and Black-eyed Susan will start popping out in mid-May through June. Here’s a list of parks with designated wildflower areas:
