Bluebonnets are popping up around Houston! If you look around any bayou, waterway or un-mowed field, chances are you will see a whole lot of them... but if you want to know exactly where to go, here are when locals say where to find bluebonnets around Houston.
If you’ve seen bluebonnets this year… please tell us where!
Bluebonnet patches around Houston:
- Bayou Parkland - at Hermann Park on Almeda, south of South MacGregor. Free public parking in the parking lot. This is a quiet (and mostly unknown) part of Hermann Park. Right on the banks of Brays Bayou, you will find tons of bluebonnets… plus you might be able to get the Bill Coats Bridge in the background.
- Brays Bayou at Almeda and South MacGregor - Behind Hermann Park, with Fudruckers and Luby’s right across the street. There is a flat wildflower site, plus lots of bluebonnets on the steeper banks of the bayou.
- Brays Bayou at/near Fonde Park - There are large patches all over the bayou, they get thicker as you walk the trail towards Spur 5.
- Buffalo Bayou Park, by Spotts Park
- Sugar Land, Chatham Avenue - By Cornerstone Elementary
- Terry Hershey Park
- TMC Transit Center – Right in the Medical Center. Find them right at the TMC Transit Center METRORail stop, between the train and MD Anderson. Take the train or bus because there isn’t much parking!
- White Oak Bayou, West TC Jester and 34th
- White Oak Bayou at Heights Bike Trail - Park by MKT or Lawrence Park and walk on the trail under Shepherd Drive. There is a patch where the Heights bike trail meets the White Oak Bayou.
- Willow Waterhole in Southwest Houston
- Mercer Botanical Gardens
