It was a disappointment to a significant extent. I went here with a group of children hoping to help them understand a little something about butterflies and nature.
Pros:
The owner has put in a great deal of effort to build the garden which is a nice green patch of land in the middle of the city. (In hindsight I would rather have visited a garden).
There were some good elements like the life stages of a butterfly in boxes for children to see live and caterpillars on leaves.
There is definitely huge scope to make this place very interesting.
The entry price is low.
Cons:
Despite multiple requests, the owner/ guide continued to describe most of the things in Marathi which most of us did not understand.
As he explained he failed to engage the larger crowd, and he kept proceeding with a smaller and smaller group of people without a care whether people were following what he says and/ or whether they were even able to hear him. He really needs to invest in a loud speaker.
There were mosquitos there which we were unprepared for.
He claimed that the place is filled with butterflies in Jan but I read some other months in other reviews which leads me to suspect this could be a gimmick but I could be wrong about this.

A quiet place close to nature. Could spot a few butterfly species. Was thrilled to see the stages of their growth... Eggs... Cocoon... Caterpillar. Great for kids. One suggestion though, the person explaining it all can be a more professional.

A perfect place for nature lovers, students,zoologists or for anyone who simply admires butterflies! A concept very well developed & maintained by the owner Mr. Owalekar. It's amazing to observe the variety of butterflies & learn about their life & habits. Visitors are given a guided tour by the owner. Fees charged are quite reasonable. Enjoyable & inspiring for the young & the old.

1) It is a jungle .So dress accordingly and wear insect repellent
2) Owner is cordial . Explains well.
3) Children enjoy here and so do photographers
4) If patient , one can view a lot of different butterflies
5) Washrooms not very clean. So try to avoid using them .
6) Carry own water.
7) Tea/Coffee and Poha/Idli available @ 50 per plate ,

Very apt to spend your Sunday mornings.
Mr. Rajan Ovalekar and his enthusiasm and love for butterflies and nature in general is overwhelming. He baffles you with sights and facts very few of us know.
The place is a humble cove for butterflies to visit, rest, breed and this is attractive for folks like us. My 6 year old was super excited to learn about different types of leaves on which these beauties love to visit, lay eggs, feed on and rest on. First time in my life have I sighted close to 100 butterflies flying all around.

Excellent place. Best for kids. They would definitely learn to preserve mother nature. Helps understand the process of a butterfly taking birth. Must go place.

It is one of the most beautiful places I have come across to spot Butterflies. They also give a guided tour of the plants and which butterflies get attracted to which plant. They tell us about the lifecycle of the butterfly.

It is a must visit place if you are a photographer, butterfly lover, or parent to a kid.

This park is located at the end of Godhbandar road and in secluded place. It has parking space for around 7-8 cars. They show you the eggs, caterpillars and small butterflies that are just out and ready to fly. This is quite peaceful place however collection of butterflies is not as good. The nominal fees of Rs. 100 is still not worth it. Good for kids one time visit.

Just a few metres off of Ghodbunder road, Ovalekar wadi is a great place to visit for all nature lovers, especially kids, if you want them to experience and learn few unique things about nature and butterflies. Ample parking space available with light breakfast, in case needed, the lush green and the brightly blooming area is an experience worth enjoying
