Butterfly Garden Now Being Built In Brickell As Part Of The Underline

Brickell should soon see an influx of butterflies, as a part of The Underline project.

According to an Instagram post yesterday, landscape architects started work on a butterfly garden at Brickell’s Southside Elementary.

In a typical butterfly garden, the aim is to create a environment conducive to attracting butterflies. That includes planting flowers and other plants which butterflies feed on.

A master plan for The Underline was unveiled in 2015. The project aims to transform 10 miles underneath the elevated Metrorail tracks into a linear park. It is being funded with a mix of donations and public funds.
