I took my children to this butterfly garden and I loved it. The place has safe parking adjacent to the garden, bathrooms, a place for children to draw, and a wonderful pupa and butterfly exhibit. There are also picnic tables. It is the perfect place to take children. I highly recommend this place.

Our kids, 5 and 7 just loved this place. We ended up having a personal tool and spent 2 hours at this small garden. Do not miss it.
