Let Your Spirit Soar!



(Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory Image)

The self-guided walking tour of the Butterfly Conservatory begins with a short, informative video presentation that is close captioned for the hearing impaired.

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!

While visiting our beautiful Butterfly Conservatory, we encourage you to take lots of photographs.

Tripods are not allowed inside the Conservatory. Use a monopod instead!
