Dahlia Hill is located on Main Street, about one mile north of Downtown Midland, directly across from the entrance to Emerson Park. On a prominent intersection in Midland, Dahlia Hill is at the center of a group of cultural and historical Midland attractions. Because of these proximities, over 11,000 cars drive past the hill every day.
Dahlia Hill is a peaceful spot to stop and relax, take photos or have a picnic lunch. The garden is open from dawn to dusk every day, free of charge. The best time to view the dahlias is from late July through October. For visitors who have walking difficulties, access to the top of the Hill can be arranged by calling us.
Please be courteous while taking pictures. Contact us if you wish to photograph a group event at Dahlia Hill.
If your club or organization would like to tour Dahlia Hill, contact us to make arrangements for a guide to show you the garden and studios. Parking is available on site, accessed from Orchard Drive.
