I visited the San Antonio Botanical Gardens frequently and took friends and family with me whenever possible. The gardens are beautiful. There are small plots that show examples of various kinds of landscaping, including a few choices in xeriscaping styles. But my favorite part of the grounds is the Native Trail, separated into East Texas Piney Woods, South Texas, and... More

We frequent gardens wherever we go and this one is at the top of the list. The grounds are in pristine condition despite the large number of people strolling about.

When you visit you can either eat at the quaint cafe or bring a picnic lunch to share with the ducks,turtles... More

We were fortunate to have a sunny day with perfect temperature and a slight breeze, which made the experience all the better. The gardens are well laid out and easy to walk through. Each section of the gardens is filled with interesting plants and have lots of information. We especially enjoyed the trails of Texas with the different plants for... More

This is not only beautiful but a real learning experience. There is a garden with plants to touch and feel. There are areas with tropical plants, desert plants, landscaped houses giving you ideas of ways to decorate your yard, and always lots of blooming plants that are pleasing to the eyes. Show up during the Christmas holidays and see the... More

We discovered this garden by accident, and we were so glad we did. There are several gardens, easily accessible on foot or in a wheelchair, and there are benches to sit throughout the gardens. There is a great view from the Overlook. There is a small gift shop and a restaurant on the grounds. The day we were there was... More
