We did not have an entire day, so had to choose wisely, decided that since we were in Texas, we should head for the Texas Native Trail area. We did all three loops: Hill Country, East Texas Piney Woods, and South Texas. All were very well done, a nice variety of plants and water features that gave a feel for... More

Absolutely stunning in the spring. The colors, foliage, the smells, the fountains, and sounds of the birds are candy for the senses. Find a nice bench near some flowers & a fountain and just close your eyes. We had intended to go to the SA Zoo, but the crowds and the parking were ridiculous....so we found the botanical garden just... More

Wonderful layout and beautiful flora. The gardens were very ADA friendly. It also had several sections covering different areas of Texas (East, Hill Country, etc.) so one could see a good representation of the state's flowers and trees.

We love coming back every single year. There is always something new here. The kids have a lot of fun every time that we come here. Great for taking family pictures as well(wedding, engagements, birthdays, etc.)

This place is so awesome. There are people that tie the knot here and get pictures taken, which has to be very beautiful. I wanted to look at the bride, but I didn't want to photo bomb. Lots of lush greenery and florals to take in. The sculpting is also fantastic---very Edward scissorhand-esqe hedges.

It's small for the price. Have seen much better. Had a wheelchair traveler with us who had to limit her visit because there are not ramps everywhere and quite a few steps.

The garden is in a residential neighborhood -- and I wanted to move there immediately to be close to this gem. We had lunch at the café which is in a historic converted carriage house. A little heavy on the dark wood, but a delightful, welcoming place with tasty quiche and salad. The gardens include a great many habitats from... More

Absolutely beautiful and so relaxing. Pricing is not too bad, for military discount you must be active duty no veteran discount. Still worth the full price.

My wife and I really liked the botanical gardens. They feature plants from all over the world with lots of exhibits to see. Definitely worth stopping by if you have some time and a car in San Antonio
