Easter Weekend at Niagara Parks Easter Egg Hunt at the Butterfly Conservatory
April 22 – 25, 2011
The Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is pleased to announce a fun new Easter Egg
Hunt for families over the long weekend April 22 – 25, 2011. This event includes a word-scramble activity where children will look for letters hidden throughout the Conservatory to spell a secret phrase for a chance to win a grand prize gift basket donated by Pop & Lolly’s Candy Shop. Thanks to generous donations from Nestle, Mars and Hershey, each child will also receive one complimentary treat (while supplies last) after their visit.
Families are encouraged to download and print a special Niagara Parks colouring page in advance of their visit and NPC staff will be pleased to post the artwork on site.
The fully accessible Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory is located on the grounds of the world-renowned Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens & School of Horticulture, 9 kilometres (5.6 miles) north of the Falls at 2565 Niagara Parkway. Admission is $12.25 for adults (ages 13+), $7.95 for children (6 – 12 years), and children five and under are admitted FREE (prices in Cdn. plus tax). Parking is free.
The Butterfly Conservatory will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Friday – Sunday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Easter Monday, with the last visitors admitted 30 minutes before closing. Please call (905) 356-8119 for details.
Another Niagara Easter tradition for over 60 years is a visit to the Annual Easter Show at Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse.
Take in the beautiful colourful and fragrant spring flowers and see real chicks and bunnies! Admission to this year-round attraction is free!
