Explore the Sunflower Fields

Hamilton, Ontario


Added by Andrea Thompson

Beautiful blooming sunflowers as far as you can see, you'll never want to leave and it will become an annual tradition the first second you see them.

Each summer the farmer that owns the land on Safari Road just off of Highway 6 alternates fields to plant sunflowers. It's best to check out the area in early July to see which field they are planted in and to assess how far along the blooms are. When they bloom you only have about one week, if that, before they start to drop. The farmer sometimes cuts the fields, so beware of that as well.

Of course, be respectful and do not damage any of the flowers or block traffic trying to get photographs. It's best to go on a weekday when it's quiet. It's also worth mentioning that sunflowers attract a lot of bees and insects, so best to avoid this if you have any allergies to stinging insects.
