See the Texas Bluebonnets at Samuell Farm

Grab your camera and capture acres of Bluebonnets. There is an “island” of Bluebonnets. A “600+ acre county island”, or a portion of Dallas County is set apart as Samuell Farm, a regional park along US-80 adjacent to Mesquite on the south and Sunnyvale on the north.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE ACCESS POINTS TO THE TWO SAMUELL FARM PARKS CLICK HERE.
The Texas Bluebonnets are in full bloom and waiting for you at Samuell Farm. Dr. William Worthington Samuell left the land behind for others to have a place to be around nature and appreciate it. It is the perfect time to bring this mission to life as springtime arrives in Texas.
Samuell Farm (South) Park can be accessed from Beltline Road turning east onto Frontage Road for US-80 100 US-80, Mesquite, TX 75149. Samuell Farm North Park can be accessed by taking Beltline Road and turning east onto Tripp. It is located at 218 E Tripp Rd, Sunnyvale, TX 75182
