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

Spent an afternoon here and very much enjoyed. With all the recent rain, everything was amazingly green and blooming. Cost $10 each for admission, a were given and map and a brief intro to the gardens. I especially enjoyed the bird blind, where I saw a Golden-fronted woodpecker (very cool to me since I live in the northeast and we... More

You get to see all sorts of plants and old stile living in Texas with some ancient homes actually there. It can get very hot in summer during midday so watch out for the timing. Other than that, I would highly recommend visiting it.

I attended the three Chipoltle Sustainable "movie and a meal" sessions this year. The gardens were just coming into bloom and were amazing. The entire concept of a sponsored, free movie and meal is wonderful. Please do it again!
