About the Butterfly Garden Project

The Butterfly Garden is part of a larger project to transform an underutilized park in Port Austin into an area of tranquility. The Port Austin Lions Club, with support from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's Public Spaces Community Places program, is turning a vacant lot next to the water tower into a place for the community and it's visitors to gather, relax, and learn. The plans are in motion for walkways, benches, landscaped gardens, and an area for growing food to donate. 


The Butterfly Garden is located at the corner of Madison & Adams Street in Tower Park, immediately beside the Port Austin Water Tower.
