The Closing Of Daffodil Hill

2019-07-20 19:51 #0 by: Tammie

Daffodil Hill is a beautiful tourist destination just a short drive outside of the Sacramento area that draws many tourists every spring. However, they have had to make the unfortunate decision to close the Hill to tourists. Since the window to view the beauty is only available during the short few weeks that Daffodils are in bloom. It draws too many people at once. The area doesn't have the proper infrastructure for so many people to show up on the roads at once. There little to no parking available and people can only pull partially off the road so it creates a very dangerous situation. I am sad that it is closing but believe that many people will still show up for photo ops and the problem won't really be resolved.

That's really sad! When they bloom I imagine it looks quite spectacular. Are there any plans for redeveloping the area that provides a solution for the traffic and the tourists?

Yes, it is sad. I don’t think they have any plans. Without buying a neighboring property I don’t think that there is any room.

That's too bad!Maybe the owners might make some form of compromise, as it would be such a shame otherwise.

It would be really nice if they found some sort of compromise.
