This is a wonderful place to visit, especialy in the late spring. It encompasses quite a few acres and most are paved walkways. There are several areas that have controlled climates with desert, tropical/jungle, specialized palm forests etc. Sections are dedicated to the various kinds of terrain found in Texas. We always love going there unless it's too hot. The... More

Lots to explore here - the LEGO sculptures were a big favorite for my kids, and we also enjoyed the fountains, giant patio chairs, water saver lane and the fern grotto. Also the sensory garden, the palm house... okay, everything. Go.

I've been to the Botanical Garden for private parties, Shakespere performances and just to wander around and enjoy the plantings. The greenhouse where the restrooms are located is full of exotic plants - orchids and ferns and so much more.

It has been years since we were here last--much has changed for the better. The area has been greatly filled in with new gardens and buildings. The walk ways are reasonably well marked, but he plants are not as well marked as they need to be. I would like to have the zones on the markers to give a sense... More

We went during the lego exhibit. It was also "dog day" so there were lots of cute puppies running around. My adult family loved it but my 11 year got bored and pouty. To fully enjoy and appreciate this garden, I would go without kids or have some plan to keep them entertained/don't plan to go through whole thing.

We had a great time visiting the San Antonio Botanical Garden with our family ranging in ages from 6 - 71. The kids enjoyed the Lego sculptures and the children's garden. The adults loved walking around the peaceful grounds enjoying the lovely plants. Everyone came away happy and with lots of new information. This is a splendid way to spend... More
