Located at historic Fair Park in Dallas, Texas Discovery Gardens is a year-round organic urban oasis filled with natural wonders for visitors of all ages.
Immerse yourself in tropical butterflies in our brand new Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. Meander down our canopy walkway as you see hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies and our collection of tropical plants.
Outside, wander through 7.5 acres of organically maintained garden displays that feature native and adapted plants. From spring through fall, you may see all stages of the butterfly's life cycle (egg, caterpillar, pupae and adult) in our native butterfly habitat! Or, stroll through our heirloom rose garden, EarthKeepers veggie garden, picturesque Grand Allee du Meadows, and more.
Texas Discovery Gardens offers classes and workshops for all ages. Check out our upcoming events page for guided garden walks, in-depth workshops, and hour-long classes.
