Butterflies up close
This was a pretty cool thing to do. You go into a greenhouse and you get to walk through all the beautiful ladnscape. All the while you have hundreds of butterflies flying all aound you and most of them time you'll get one to land on you.
Housed right next to the Botanical Gardens, this fairly new attraction allows you to view numerous species of butterflies in a lovely setting of tropical plants and waterfalls. I was amazed at how many butterflies were flying around and at times they looked almost like confetti from a distance.Before entering the Sanctuary, you are shown a seven minute film as an introduction.
Be sure to buy your tickets as soon as you arrive. Only a limited amount of people are allowed in at a time. You may have to wait an hour or two,but this is no problem because you can enjoy the Botanical Gardens during this time.
You are not allowed to touch the butterflies, but they may end up landing on you!.Especially if you are wearing a hat.
Photos are allowed.
Admission is $8.50
I didn't get to see it but there'e a big butterfly conservatory - it's supposed to be really awesome. I didn't know about it until on the way home. I wish I would've known before I went - but now you do!
Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory
I didn't know if I would like wandering among so many butterflies, but I did. It is very hot in there, though, so not for those who have trouble with heat.
This is only one idea of something to do from an endless list of things. Great fun for the kid in all of us.
Taste a little heaven when you visit this butterfly sanctuary, hundreds of butterfly around you with lush tropical green as background..... ehm heaven !!
