“Butterfly House Is First Rate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

The garden itself is small, well-maintained and peaceful. The Butterfly House is the reason to visit and was terrific. There are hundreds and hundreds of butterflies from dozens of species. The path through the plantings allows for closeup viewing of resting, and mating butterflies, as well as panoramic views with butterflies fluttering everywhere. We came to Fair Park just to look around and feel like we stumbled onto a Dallas gem.
