So much more than I expected. If you live in the area, buy a pass. I wish the military discount extended to the families, as well, because it is rather pricey, but the gardens and... read more

Not sure why, but they're really letting this garden deteriorate. I went about a dozen years ago and then again about five years ago. Both times I was wowed. When I went in June, I wasn't. Things just looked unkempt. This was especially apparent in the Japanese Garden. Everything seemed to have outgrown it's spot. The shrubbery had that bare... More

It you love flowers, this is the place to visit! My girls' and I had a wonderful time. We toured the Rainforest exhibit and all the amazingly beautiful flowers. Well worth the trip. My youngest daughter loved the Japanese Tea Garden.

Went to the plant sale in March 2015. Great visit, garden was beautiful. Wasn't used to parking on a grass lot, but had a good time and will go back again soon.

we were here couple years ago in May and found this botanical garden. It was pretty decent size. A good 2 hours to kill and expect to handle the heat, because we it was mostly outdoor.

My family and I visited the botanical garden at San Antonio and I must say it was AMAZING. Its big and has beautiful flowers, waterfalls, lake, rain forest like and much more things you must see. Our visit was extremely exhausting due to the hot weather. But it is a must see place!!! Worth the stop.

Marvelous garden for walks; great for young kids to explore. Cost is reasonable esp. if you can be a regular visitor. Not necessarily something I's recommend to for tourist with just 2-3 days to experience San Antonio. Staff is adequate, reasonable courteous. Fun outing for grandparents. Take weather/ temps into consideration - can get very hot in summer months.
