While we’re still holding onto those last dreamy days of summer, there’s one local hidden gem that you’re not going to want to miss out on before it’s gone.
Ocean View Estates is nestled within the Saanich Peninsula, and though they’re known for their corn maze, for the first time ever they’re offering a beautiful Sunflower Walk on the very same property.
A stunning display of the sunny flowers greets you at the walk’s entrance, and the whole experience is a proverbial Instagram playground – for everything from those perfect photo ops to a floral enthusiast’s dream.
From now through the end of August, visitors can frolic through two acres of flowers and pathways. You can expect to feast your eyes on several different kinds of sunflowers, with family-friendly props and dreamy backdrops along the way.
A number of health and safety measures are being implemented, such as limiting the fields’ capacity, expanding the pathways to allow physical distancing, and placing hand-sanitizing stations and safety notices around the field.
Tickets will only be sold online in 1.5 hour time slots to ensure proper distancing and that all visitors will experience the full flower power of the field.
Tickets for the Sunflower Walk are on sale now, but grab them quick as spots are limited and the flowers don’t keep – according to the event’s organizer, the blooms will only last until the beginning of September!
In addition to navigating through the stunning fields, visitors will be able to purchase freshly cut flowers and produce from the locally owned and operated farm, and your ticket also counts towards experiencing the corn maze on site as well.
On top of this, they’re also offering the unique experience of sunflower yoga – an exclusive, intimate class taught within the field surrounded by the vibrant blooms.
Tickets for the yoga classes are sold separately, and can also be purchased online.
