Great place to visit

The botanical gardens were much larger than I thought. Beautiful variety of plants, trees and succulents. Very nicely arranged. I really like the cactus walk

This is a very beautiful gardens with many different attractions. The grounds are extensive and have many different areas each with different plants and things to see. Be sure to wear your tennis shoes because this is a big place and there is a lot of walking but it is worth it. They seem to be adding a very large... More

There's a gift shop to walk through to gain entrance or exit. A small entrance fee gets one through the gate and into the gardens. Be prepared with comfortable shoes as there is a good deal of walking. We loved every part of the garden and spent half a day exploring. We'd done this previously at Easter time when blue... More

Whenever I travel - a visit to the local botanical gardens is a "must do" activity for me. This is a well maintained and informative botanical garden - featuring the types of plants that thrive in the area of south Texas - or anywhere that has limited water resources. I chapped to go on a beautiful spring day - so... More

We spent a wonderful half-day here a couple of weeks ago. I was amazed at the number of plants blooming in the Fall! The fruit tree grove was incredible, along with the tropical plants. I highly recommend good walking shoes, because you don't want to miss anything. Be sure to get your pictures made in the huge chairs. If I... More

Loved it! The attraction has plenty of diversity - from typical botanical garden fare with plant varieties in temperate enclosures, to replications of settlers homes in the early days, to the variety of landscaping options for south Texans, a small lake, butterfly garden and bird sanctuary, this place had it all. Well maintained, beauty abound. Well worth the entrance fee... More

We needed a change of pace and the Botanical Garden provided us with that very opportunity. You visit it at your own pace and it's an amazing experience. I have never seen so many butterflies. Lots of color makes you happy.

This garden is filled with native plants and flowers. The walk is tranquil and relaxing. Catch the #11 bus to get there.

My husband and I visit botanical gardens in every town we can--enjoying the beauty and unique plantings of the area. San Antonio's version seems to be very family-oriented, with exhibits directed at smaller children. While we were there they had scarecrows placed throughout the garden for Halloween designed by local businesses and non-profits. I enjoyed the ramble through the gardens,... More
