One of the Largest
Situated within the KL Lake Gardens in the heart of the city, Butterfly Park is spread over 80,000 sq. ft. The Park boasts several thousands of butterflies which make their home on the flowering plants that are strategically placed to attract and showcase these colourful insects. From Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing, Malaysia’s national butterfly, to red-speckled Common Rose, there are hundreds of species here.
There are feeding trays stationed at regular intervals where ripened pineapple and banana slices are ‘served’ for the butterflies. These are good places to hang around if you’re looking for some fabulous close-ups.
More than Just Butterflies
The landscaped gardens also feature several ponds filled with Japanese koi and turtles. A learning centre also highlights the various stages of metamorphosis so children can see it first-hand. Visitors are also acquainted with other members of the insect world like colourful beetles, dragonflies, leaf insects, praying mantis and more.
All nature-lovers will enjoy the unique items on sale at the souvenir shop here – framed butterflies, beetles, glass pyramids with butterflies and much more.
