Can't wait until the next portion of the Garden is built and completed. I love wandering through this beautiful garden, learning and seeing the different flora, reading the interesting bit of info on the plaques. The large dome area is extremely interesting. The kids would love it too.

Decided to go here instead of the zoo since it was raining on and off and weren't sure if the animals would be out. When we got there we easily found parking. Only issue we had after parking was we weren't totally sure where to go to get in and pay. (More signs would be better). Once we did get... More

We really enjoyed the Botanical Gardens. Beautiful grounds and plants. Especially enjoyed the walks by the Pineywoods and the Water Saver homes. We at lunch at the Carriage House and had yummy meal. We very much enjoyed our visit and hope to return.

Nice family place, with beautiful plants. Visit their website before going to see what special events might be taking place during your SA visit. For lunch, try the Cartiage House restaurant. Delicious food, great service and good prices. Closes at 2pm.

We decided to visit the botanical gardens because our kids love it. We visit the gardens of every city we visit. That said, if you have visited the Atlanta Botanical Gardens this one will leave you very disappointed. Everything was green. Nothing was in bloom. The trails were very nice and if you are into cactus and nature trails this... More

For the price we paid we though this place wouldn't have much, but man were we wrong! There was so much to look at, and the whole place was huge. This was by far the best $10 we ever spent for a good 2 and 1/2 hours.

The gardens are beautiful. Watch the events page to see when they show movies or do live theater presentations. It's always fun to watch

Gorgeous and manicured...the peace and tranquility are some of my favorite features. Go early in the morning, enjoy the sights, smells and the beauty of nature. My husband and I have visited botanical gardens in other states as well as other countries, San Antonio has one of the best we have seen! We love it so much we have become... More
