Fort Collins Butterfly Garden To Open Saturday
Nature enthusiasts have been waiting for two years for this exciting time at the Gardens on Spring Creek! They are getting ready to open the doors to a $6 million improvement, including a year-round Butterfly House, five acres of new gardens and a huge cactus collection, the largest in United States, in fact. There is also an expanded gift shop, visitor center and a new admission fee.
The Gardens do events year round, including one of my personal favorites, the Garden of Lights holiday lights display, coming December 13. There is also a big plant sale in the spring and summer concerts to look forward to.
The official ribbon cutting is this Saturday, November 16 at 9 a.m. You get free admission if you attend the ribbon cutting. The Gardens normal hours are every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Seniors (65+) & Military: $9
Youth (2-17 yrs) $8
Youth under 2 yrs: Free
