This magical attraction features over 2,000 colourful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms and greenery. Paths wind through the rainforest setting, past a pond and waterfall and the Emergence window, where butterflies leave their pupae and prepare to take their first flight! The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation that is close captioned for the hearing impaired.
The Butterfly Conservatory is located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, 10 minutes north of the Falls. Over 2,000 butterflies, made up of 45 different species, call this beautiful space home. Explore 180 metres of pathways winding through a lush, tropical environment.
Children 5 and under are FREE at all Niagara Parks attractions.
Parking at the Botanical Gardens is $5.00. Local residents may pay a one-time fee of $10 for an annual parking pass (increasing to $11 effective Jan 1, 2015).
