This Stunning Sunflower Field In Cincinnati Is Now In Full Bloom And You Have To See It For Yourself
Summer is a beautiful season in Cincinnati and one of the signs that we are nearing the start of a new school year and the end of summer fun, is a blooming sunflower field. Sunflowers are the universally loved flower that is magical on its own, but when you witness a full field of these yellow blooms, it’s downright enchanting. If you’ve ever driven around Mason this time of year, particularly past Cottell Park, then you’ve surely noticed the stunning sunflower field. Well, this beautiful field is now in bloom and you simply have to see it for yourself.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Sunflower fields are often witnessed from a distance, so we are lucky to be able to experience this natural wonder up close, and just a short drive from downtown. But please remember that if you do visit, pay the utmost respect to the field and flowers, park in a designated lot, and do not cut any of the blooms. Please join with us to preserve this field and allow this lovely summer tradition to continue in the Queen City.
Cottell Park is located at 5847 Irwin Simpson Rd., Mason, OH 45040, and you’ll find the field right across the street. For more information on this park, and many other suburban favorites, check out our previous article here.
