The California Super bloom is here! I am sure you have seen the gorgeous images of red poppies, yellow mustard and other wild flowers in your social media feed by now! But if you are like me, you live in the Bay Area and a 2 hour drive to see those gorgeous flowers does not sound enticing!

Especially if you have ever-demanding toddlers in tow, you would rather enjoy the view on your phone than take a 2(going to 5) hour long trip.

But all is not lost! I have scouted these amazing places in Bay Area and within 15 minutes of driving distance from you(no matter where you live in the south Bay Area) where you can find Spring Flowers!

Here are my favorite places to get Spring Photos, sorted by the Spring Flowers:

Wildflowers in Bay Area

Wildflowers are more fragile and short lived than wild mustard we see a lot in the Bay Area. Although you can find different types of wildflowers all the way into summer, once they arrive, they stay for just a few weeks.


My favorite places to find wildflowers are:

  • Guadalupe Oak Grove Park

  • Almaden Quick Sliver

  • Calero County Park

  • TJ Martin Park

Wild Mustard in Bay Area

Wild Mustard is another of my favorite flowers and is found so readily in almost all of the parks and nature reserves in the Bay Area.

My favorite places to find fields of wild mustard are:


  • Almaden Meadows Park

  • Orchard Heritage Park in Sunnyvale

  • Heritage Orchard Saratoga

  • Field by North 1st Street and River Oak

  • Queens Pumpkin Patch in Saratoga

Cherry Blossoms in Bay Area

Cherry Blossoms are extremely short lived and very very fragile. If you spot cherry blossoms, try to visit the orchard within a week. Cherry Blossoms bloom for about 3 weeks around April.


  • Orchard Heritage Park in Sunnyvale

  • Heritage Orchard Saratoga

  • Blossom Hill Road by Heintz Open Space


Hope you will have fun hunting down Spring Flowers in the Bay Area! As fleeting as spring can be, it is also very beautiful.
