Year Opened: 2019
The Butterfly House is a year-round home to hundreds of North American butterflies and dozens of varieties of flowering plants, built and operated in partnership with the Butterfly Pavilion.
This warm and experiential sensory experience allows all ages to get “up close” to both butterflies and plants in a tropical environment. The garden was carefully curated to provide nectar-rich plants for the butterflies, as well as locations for roosting, resting and basking.
Denver's Butterfly Pavilion is the first stand-alone, Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited non-profit invertebrate zoo. While The Gardens on Spring Creek enjoys a partnership with the Butterfly Pavilion, our organizations are separate.
