Bluebonnets are the backdrop here in Texas. Bluebonnets are made even more special by the fact that they are only around about 45 days each year and the height of their beauty and population hits mid-April. Each year you see hundreds of bluebonnet photos circulating on Facebook and Instagram as couples, families, and pet owners flock to the fields. We have loved taking our dogs over the years to get their bluebonnet photos, so, we thought we would share where to find dog friendly bluebonnet fields near Frisco!
Living in the city means we don’t see them QUITE as much as our fellow Texans in more rural areas, but when we do see them, man it just makes you FEEL Texan.
Dog Friendly Bluebonnet Fields in Little Elm
We have spent years watching the bluebonnets bloom at the Zion Cemetery in Little Elm. Just north of Panther Creek on FM 423 on the Frisco/Little Elm border, Zion Cemetery is surrounded on both the north and south sides now with thousands of beautiful blue flowers. We love going during the week day with Abbie to get pictures when not a lot of other people are around!
Dog Friendly Bluebonnet Fields in Frisco
The Frisco Garden Club has been working to restore the prairie at Freedom Meadow in the Warren Sports Complex. Their goal to help local wildlife and pollinators is a win for us because it is filled with beautiful wildflower blooms for us to enjoy!
Dog Friendly Bluebonnet Fields in Plano
Bluebonnet Trail around the old JC Penney Headquarters is a phenomenal expanse of bluebonnets in years past. Its not as far as it sounds from us, you’ll find this field on Legacy Drive between Dallas North Tollway and Sam Rayburn Tollway.
Another great excursion around Plano to see bluebonnets is the Bluebonnet Trail Greenbelt. It runs from Central Expressway to Midway Road along Spring Creek Parkway and Chase Oaks Boulevard.
Dog Friendly Bluebonnet Fields in Ennis
Okay, Ennis is no where near Frisco, but, I would be doing Bluebonnet Season a disservice if I didn’t mention “The Official Bluebonnet City in Texas” as a fantastic place to go see and take photos of your pups in the bluebonnets! With more than 40 miles of bluebonnet trails mapped out AND the Bluebonnet Trails Festival mid-April – this town is a can’t miss feature in your bluebonnet exploration. Be sure to check out their website for up-to-date Bluebonnet peak information (this year, peak blooms is expected the 3rd week of April due to last year’s drought).
Where have you seen bluebonnets this year? We’d love to see your pups in the bonnets AND we’d love to know where more places are nearby!
