Excellent place to see for any age. Our beautiful hill of multiple colors is breathtaking. Worth the visit to Dahlia Hil

Midland, MI. has many very incredible places to visit. Dahlia Hill is just one. The Tridge over the Chippewa river is also worth the visit.

Best viewing is mid-summer through the end of September. The variety of Dahlias is astonishing! Very well cared for.

A quick stop lead to a lingering walk through the most beautiful flowers. As I climed the gentle slope among the terraces of thounds of dahlias I realized how devoted volunteers have given their lives to this wonder, and then their ashes afterwards. There are memorials to some well known people here. A spiritual experience! Beautiful artist studios and galleries... More

The corner of Main street and Orchard Drive is absolutely glorious. The Dahlias are big, bright and enchanting. I will go out of my way to go by that corner just to view the beauty of it all. They work hard to make it lovely and it pays off.

Always a good drive-by and good stop. Great photo-op. They give flowers to the sick. Tuber sale in spring. Lots of hard work by these dedicated people.

There is so much beauty in one dahlia, and here we have an entire hillside full of them! Late August/early September is a perfect time to visit and learn about all the many, many types of dahlias there are. Photos of the blooms capture the spectacular colors and shapes - it's quite fun to have these as background photos for... More

Before visiting this historic hill we never really appreciated the amazing glory of dahlias. If you have any interest in beautiful flowers you should put this on your list. And if you have any connection to Midland you may recognize some memorial names.

When Dahlia Hill is in full bloom, it is quite a spectacular sight. Dahlia flowers are so unique and intricate, and they have many varieties for your viewing pleasure. Great for some fun macro photography too!

Perhaps the most beautiful place in Midland to visit in the late Summer month into early Fall. The volunteers works so hard and it is worth a visit. I go the last weekends of May for their tuber sale.

I've seen a lot of dahlia gardens in France but it's hard to find them in the Midwest. This is a great place to see dahlias. This is my second visit and both times I've found dahlias that I want to try in my own small bed. This visit one of the volunteers was in the garden and let me... More
