Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture

Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture Review

Professional gardeners have graduated from here since 1936; 100 acres of immaculately maintained gardens are open to the public. Within the Botanical Gardens is the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, housing one of North America's largest collections of free-flying butterflies—at least 2,000 butterflies from 50 species around the world are protected in a climate-controlled, rain forest–like conservatory. Between May and mid-October, for C$18.50 per person, you can tour the gardens in a horse and carriage.
