Sure, the beautiful Autumn leaves and well needed days off thanks to the holidays make up for the cold and dreary days that come in Fall. Still, you might want to escape the crisp air every now and then and the Windmill Garden Centre located here in Medicine Hat encourages you to do so. You’ll find a beautiful garden escape full of all the colours of the rainbow.
Founded in 1967, Windmill Garden Centre has been connecting its community to the wonder of nature with their dazzling displays of colour with various plant species, both local and tropical. Along with hundreds of beautiful flowers and tropical plants grown at Windmill Garden Centre, you’ll find John’s butterfly house. This unique experience brings hundreds of butterflies together creating a breathtaking cohabitat. Species of butterfly include Blue Morpho, Long Wing, Mormon, Monarch, Malachite, Owl, Paperkite and the Atlas Moth.
This attraction is open for all ages to enjoy! Perfect for a family excursion or special date night, the Windmill Garden Centre is always a fun time. Price of admission ranges from $5 - $8.50 and can be paid for at the front door. You’ll also have access to their gift shop which has a great selection of Canadian goods and other fun suivineers.
