San Antonio's botanical garden is better than that of most other Texas cities. My 9-year-old really liked those glass towers with different climate themes. I really enjoyed the fruit trees there, they are so pleasant to look at with oranges and lemon fruit hanging all over them. The gardens are very beautiful and the layout flows very well. I also...

San Antonio Botanical Gardens are great, a cool place to go when it is a hot day. Both our door and inside spaces to see all species of foliage. Very large place so bring your walking shoes when the outside terrain is visited, the prairie space for instance.

Love this Garden... we visit botanical gardens all over the country, and this one is certainly one of the VERY BEST. There's so much to see it may take you a couple visits to see it all. This has become an annual event for us.

A very nice garden with some interesting and unique ideas not seen elsewhere. It was so very hot the day we went we did not take the walk around the lake, but we enjoyed walking around the main gardens. Note that it is part of the reciprocal program with other gardens around the US, and as such our entry was... More

A beautiful garden, although we went in the heat of August. Grounds are very well maintained, but those rainforest rooms and succulent rooms are to die for if you are a plant lover. They are planning an extension as well. Staff great as well.

We were there for a wedding last weekend. It looks the same as it did 15 years ago when I was last there. Beautiful trees and flowers, sidewalks, benches. Nice place to relax. But it was very hot for an outdoor wedding in August (who does that!!!).

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

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 experiences are quite lovely and broad. Plenty of photo opportunities

Beautiful gardens and walkways. Great place to stroll ... Benches are placed strategically along the walkways. The whole family was there with a photographer...getting some great wedding photos.

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.
