These gardens are just a few miles from the River Walk. We spent at least 2 hours wandering the grounds enjoying the mulit-layers of blooms everywhere as well as the unique architecture. This is a must see.

We took in the Botanical Garden not knowing what to expect only to find an exceptional series of gardens with most everything in bloom. Butterflies were everywhere and made for a somewhat magical experience.
