Texas Discovery Gardens


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”932″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Texas Discovery Gardens is a 7.5 acre organic garden featuring native and adapted plants. Inside, our two-story Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium transports you to a tropical rainforest, complete with hundreds of free-flying butterflies.

Located in Dallas’ historic Fair Park, Texas Discovery Gardens is a year-round organically maintained urban oasis filled with natural wonders. Family festivals, free admission days, and our extensive (and growing) EarthKeepers® student education program introduce children and adults to natural outdoor learning experiences.

We are the first public garden in the state of Texas to be certified 100% organic by the Texas Organic Research Center. The gardens are maintained using sustainable methods that conserve water and help to protect the environment.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]


Crossing our fingers, hoping we'll get some more caterpillars in the Gardens. So far, we have gulf fritillaries and pipevine swallowtails. Now we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for queen caterpillars!

This picture took lots of patience! Blue Morphos are notorious for landing with their wings closed.

We’re loving this view from the second story of the Butterfly House, featuring a male great eggfly soaking up some sun.

Check what this reviewer is saying:

This place was really neat. They’re open year round. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Ask about their year pass pack. The gift shop is cool. I came for a friend’s party and the kids loved it. The butterfly garden is incredible! They had a lot of interesting critters too. They have many special events throughout the year.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”928″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Make sure you follow @texasdiscoverygardens/ on instagram to keep up with the latest changes to their Eats & Drinks! menu and follow us at @newtodallasguide for even more adventures around your favorite city[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
