Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park
3601 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75210
Each Tuesday, the gardens are open for FREE (and butterfly house admission is only half price)! Whoo-hoo! Don't forget to bring your lunch/snacks and if the weather's nice we can eat picnic style!
***Ten themed areas include a butterfly habitat, native wildlife pond, scent garden, shade garden and heirloom garden.
The gardens offer workshops and guided tours that provide expert advice on using native and adapted plants to create backyard habitats for butterflies, birds and other native wildlife.
At Texas Discovery Gardens, visitors also discover a wealth of information on ways to restore, conserve and preserve natural environments in urban areas. It is the home of the first public garden in the state of Texas to be certified 100 percent organic by the Texas Organic Research Center.
The Gardens are also the home to the Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. ***borrowed from website: http://texasdiscoverygardens.org
