Varied plants, beautiful and imaginatively designed greenhouses and lovely grounds. A staff member gave us an impromptu guided tour of the tropical conservatory. There is a nice overlook where you can see a nice panorama of San Antonio. Delightful place.

This Botanical Garden is 35 years old and is still expanding and growing. It is a treasure and a wonderful place to spend time. The many varieties of birds added their voices and music to our walk. The specialty pavilions are amazing. The native Texas trail is very good. The Japanese Garden is very peaceful. We saw singles, and families... More

We hold a membership at our local garden, so we like to go to reciprocal gardens when we travel. This garden was small, but well maintained. I loved how they laid out the garden and my only complaint is the construction noises next to the garden. Obviously that isn't something the garden can control. We didn't go to the bird... More

Wow!! When we lived in San Antonio this was one of our favorite places to visit and bring visitors. I was so happy to see all the improvements being made to the Garden -- like so many places we revisited in San Antonio, it has only become better over time. Really appreciate all the efforts being made to this special... More

Amazing trails, fun to watch the birds at the bird blind. My favorite was the street with the small cottages showing how to create front yards that use less water. Great cafe--delicious sandwiches for lunch.

Unlike many places, this one is always changing. New plants of course, but they also have special events. Mazes, animal exibits, oversized garden eqiupment have been just a view. Out family loves the flashlight nights!

Our botanical garden is a panoply of iridescent color throughout the year. There is always something new that is set out in a well thought out fashion. From tropical potentials to the natural grasses of our desert like, hill country area and the coastal plain, they always have surprises in store. Located very nearby the Fort Sam Houston Army Base...

Planning our Travel from Phila. This was one we really wanted to see. Boy it did not disappoint! I would give it a few hours unless you like to sit and just enjoy. There were plenty of place to relax. The indoor gardens were really nice. the outdoor were just as nice. The bronze sculptures are super cool! Just a... More

I enjoyed the tropical plant exhibits, the cactus pavilion and the Japanese garden, but I think the most interesting were the short trails that showcased the different plants of Texas.
