Had a photoshoot here and it was perfect for doing a catalog that we produced. Was able to get shots for all seasons!

We loved the Botanical Gardens! Take Sightseer Bus #7 from town. It will take you right to the front door. As you buy your tickets in the "Carriage House", stop in Anne Marie's Carriage House Bistro. Great food! There is also a gift shop there. One of the first things you will see are the giant "lawn chairs" and the... More

My husband, 13-year-old daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We always make a point of stopping at gardens and museums when we visit a city. These gardens are lovely and more extensive than expected, but not overwhelming (which is nice). We spent about 3-4 hours and were able to leisurely enjoy every area. Definitely go into all of the...

The care taken to have such a beautiful place is worth the time of any visitor to see. The jazz events provided at the garden only enhance its beauty while enjoying a beautiful night out.

This was the best weather on our San Antonio trip so we began at the gardens and checked out the Lego exhibit. We had seen it in KC and appreciated the creative placement at the SA gardens. Love the oversize chairs.. Great honey I shrunk the Kids pictures!

When I went it was early summer. Everything was blooming. I really enjoyed walking around. It is something kids would not fully appreciate; you can't pick the flowers. There are places to sit and rest. I did not buy water or food.

Four of us shared a glorious 60 deg.F. three hours on 29th. December, wandering in the beautiful San Antonio Botanical Gardens. The Lego sculptural exhibition I found at times to be interesting, but how can an artist "really" imitate such wonderful natural beauties... in lego? lol! Apart from the outdoor trees, flowers and plants, I enjoyed the architecturally interesting glass... More

We had come to Texas in December to get away from the cold northern winter, but Mother Nature decided that Texas needed a bit of chilly as well. So our visit to the Botanic Garden might have been a bit longer, had it been a few degrees warmer. But the good news is that we know to come back when... More

There was not much here in the month of December. The trees were allopathy dead and there was not much in the way of flowers. Maybe it's better in the summer but skip it during the winter months.
