The Big Deal: Texas Discovery Gardens At Fair Park

by Gila Espinoza 6 Sep 2017 8:30 AM

Okay, so you’ve been at Fair Park to chow down on a Fletcher’s Corny Dog during the State Fair. But have you taken the family to explore the Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park?

The Texas Discovery Gardens is a 7 1/2 acre organic oasis. Every day at noon the Gardens do a butterfly release in their tropical butterfly house that is home to butterflies from around the world. There’s a native snake exhibit where you can learn to identify the snakes that slither around in your garden and pond. Their Gift Shop is sure to have the perfect gift for the nature lover in your family. And of course, there are the gardens  – organic gardens that attract all kinds of bees, birds, and butterflies.  Their educational programs for kids and adults can help you learn about sustaining a natural environment so you can create your own little oasis. Win this Big Deal and receive a voucher good for admission for 4 anytime through December 2019.

Before you flutter away, be sure to check out our two other Big Deals.  Enter to win tickets to see TITAS Presents Ballet Hispánico at the Moody Performance Hall in Dallas or if you’re feeling nostalgic then enter for a chance to see Arrested Development and Tone Loc at McCall Plaza in Plano.
