The old "Crystal Gardens", a saltwater swimming pool under glass 
recycled into a conservatory and endangered animal breeding center, 
is, I regret to say, no more. The building is there, but the plants 
and animals are gone. Wasn't glitzy enough to satisfy the officials 
in the tourism ministry, I guess.

"Butterfly Gardens" is right on the way to Butchart Gardens.
