The Butterfly Conservatory located on the grounds of the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens is a must see attraction while visiting Canada. The kids and I had conducted a few weeks of research once we decided our Spring Break destination and collectively agreed that we has to make a trip to see its beauty.
The magnificent attraction actually features well over 2,000 beautiful colorful tropical butterflies that float freely around among the exotic, lush greenery. The paths give the vibe of an actual rainforest setting complete with a past pond and waterfall.
The kids and I were amazed to see that the Butterfly Conservatory had a full view for visitors of their amazing Emergence window. The Emergence is where butterflies leave their pupae and prepare to take their first flight! How awesome is that? The kids had an opportunity to see this is happen.
The self-guided walking tour is great for all ages and indeed a treat if you’re a lover of exotic butterflies. We learned on our visit that there was not only over 2,000 butterflies but they made up 45 different species. The tour in my family’s opinion is indeed an experience that we will never forget and simply beautiful. We suggest that you take the time to walk the conservatory and soak in all of its beauty. The beautiful Chenille plants are breath taking and the chance to observe the Butterfly Feeding Station is amazing.
I was so captured by the beauty it was the perfect place to strike a memorable yoga pose.
Keep in mind that the beautiful butterflies love to make a pit stop on your head or arm. If you do visit please be attentive to them and watch your step so that there are not any casualties. The cost was very reasonable. We paid $5 for parking and $14.25/adult and $9.25/kids and it was worth every penny.
