the lego tour was there when we went and it was cool. The gardens have a wide variety of plants and the greenhouses are really interesting. Also, there are acreage areas with different climates from Texas. I really felt like I was back in East Texas.

Although it is a bit pricey for what is offered the gardens are beautiful and the sights were interesting. I liked how they tried to have a little bit of all Texas landscapes represented.

The San Antonio Botanical Gardens are divided into a number of area which represent the diverse botanical regions of Texas. With a state as big as Texas one can only imagine the varied growing patterns with in each. Not to be missed is the Children's Garden. with the help of San Antonio Master Gardener's children learn to plant and tend... More

My grandson (age 7) LOVES to visit the Botanical Gardens. This time we took his 5-year-old sister as well as a friend, and the energy used as they ran, climbed and explored kept me smiling. They went through the maze twice, and would have a third time if time had permitted! I am impressed with how interactive the gardens are... More

There were lots of flowers in bloom. Loved the whimsy of rubber ducks in a fountain children could play in. Really enjoyed the two gardens of cacti inside the... More

Each of the consevatories is very well kept and has various plants that are in bloom. There are a few flowering trees like crabs and plums that are fragrant. The different historical buildings...
