I like botanical gardens in general and San Antonio garden was no exception. I cannot say that it had any significant memorable highlights, but yet it quenched my spiritual need for peace and quiet.

We played hooked at a seminar and a group of us went to visit the Botanical Gardens. They are so beautiful. There are lots of steps so if you have trouble walking this might not be the best place for you. We enjoyed a refreshing snack in their small snack bar. We took lots of photos. If you want to...

It offers a lot of neat little niche garden areas. It can be a very hot outing in the heat of summer. Make sure to bring lots of water.

This place is batutiful, quiet and very pleasent, Ideal for a relax fresh day, I do not reccomend going on very hot days because there is plenty of walking and not enough trees and shades. Take snacks with you and a camera.

Love this place. So peaceful, there is a section that they rebuilt the swampy woodlands from eastern Texas and it is gorgeous. The atriums that house all the different climate types and the plants from those climates are amazing. Shakespeare in the Park was awesome. I loved seeing this version of Hamlet. The rose garden smells amazing. Thoroughly suggest this... More

The gardens are a great spot to get away from hectic life for a while. If you are into plants then you'll be in heaven. If you just want a peaceful stroll and maybe time to sit a think it's a great place. My girls love to go there in their CosPlay costumes for the photo opportunities they find. It's... More

More of a park like setting - not a lot of elaborate displays or educational exhibits. Beautiful nonetheless. They host awesome events such as Moonlight in Gardens and live music events. Those are well worth the price of admission.

We were impressed with a vast array of different plants, perhaps enabled by the unique climate this area has. Nevertheless, exhibits were well put together although I would have liked signs on more plants as my plant knowledge may be extensive, but limited to the climate I came from and being that I love to learn would have enjoyed knowing...

There are an incredible array of plants on display. The walking paths are gentle with lots of stopping points with benches. There are also great exhibits. We stopped in when they had an incredible exhibit of lego art. It was pretty amazing. The Botanical Garden is a great place to spend an afternoon. You can even have lunch.
