Papillion Butterfly Garden
The Papillion Butterfly Garden celebrates and protects our community's namesake — the butterfly. This garden provides not only a habitat, but a living classroom where the community can come to enjoy and learn about butterflies. The garden was created in 2020 as a Papillion 150 project, celebrating Papillion's 150th anniversary. The garden was made possible thanks to the generous donations of the Papillion community, and it is sustained by area volunteer gardeners.
The Papillion Butterfly Garden enhances the serene and reflective nature of Veterans Park. The garden features a 16-foot-tall monarch butterfly sculpture by renowned Omaha artist Matthew Placzek.
