I took the "sightseeing bus" right to the gate and arrived as the garden was opening for the day. It was so pleasant to wander the grounds without a lot of people around. I'm sure it gets busier later in the day. The views of the city from various areas of the garden were spectacular. The cactus gardens were interesting... More

My wife and I headed to the San Antonio Botanical Garden on a chilly but bright November day. Having read some of the TA reviews, we anticipated that we would enjoy our day out and this is how it turned out. There is ample free parking and the entrance fee is a very reasonable $10 per adult. We took our... More

If you are looking for a wonderful place to simply sight see or relax, this is the place. Great place to take pictures as well. You can get a clear sense of relaxation and simply enjoy the quietness of this location. I would highly recommend if you are in the San Antonio area.

This is an exceptionally good botanical garden. Well laid out and packed with informative walks. When we visited there were many sculptures made of Lego, which added to the interest. Would really recommend a visit to anybody nearby as a couple of hours well spent.

If you are considering adding this location to your San Antonio visit you had better allow several hours and make sure you have water if the weather is warm. I expected a quick, boring visit to a local tourist trap to humor the ladies who wanted to check it out. Suffice to say I was wrong. This place has had... More

The garden brings joy and wonder! We enjoy the planting and harvesting. The mountain of knowledge learned from participating in the garden is practical and helpful. The experience is priceless.

My family and I had about 2 hours to kill in San Antonio. Not wanting to shop, we decided to hop on up to the Botanical Gardens. What a nice surprise! The grounds are quite extensive, and the displays are very informative. While we were there, a special LEGO display was featured. It was fun poking through the gardens looking... More

I love this place. My hubby and I visited on the first fall-like day of the year (Nov 1) and we had a wonderful time. I sure wish I could grow plants like they look here, so I was very envious throughout our visit. We walked around the little lake and sat and visited on the benches throughout the park.... More

Very nicely maintained! Went there when the Leggo show was on and there were some really creative pieces. Also went to look for birds, and wasn't disappointed. Lots of birds throughout. A wedding activity was going on when we were there too and the music carried some distance and took a little away from our experience however. I guess I... More

It was a nice place to visit for the day. There are quite a few things to see. I would suggest going when the days are not so hot and bringing a good pair of shoes, as it involves a lot of walking, but it's worth checking out.
