I was there at the end of opening hours. Even not sure we decided to visit. We had only one hour but was enough. Beautiful gardens. In summer bring some water and sun protector.

The gardens are beautiful. Wear low walking shoes. Lots to see and walk around to enjoy. The koi fish are beautiful and fun to feed...you can buy the food there. Kids love this place. My little 2 year old grand daughter even did not want to leave. Some shaded areas to get in out of the sun also. Great setting... More

Don't miss the San Antonio Botanical Gardens. This is, by far, the best example of an outdoor botanical garden in the US that I've been able to go to. The diversity of environments is incredible, from the old-world styled rose garden to the modern (and enclosed) tropical and desert environments. The SA Botanical Gardens are an excellent place to stop... More

I've always enjoyed visiting the Botanical Gardens. The first time I was there, I was shooting a music video and I really enjoyed everything it had to offer. Since then, I've shot other commercials and even part of a feature film there. It's truly a place where you can escape for the day if you choose. The pond in the... More

This is a must-see in San Antonio. The gardens are so beautiful and the falls are gorgeous. We have been several times and no matter the time of year, this is a beautiful place. They have a nice café but it is usually very crowded so make reservations.

The gardens are simply stunning and fragrant! I recently visited in July. If visiting during the hot Texas summer, I suggest that you go earlier in the morning or in the late afternoon. We arrived shortly after opening, 9:10, and the weather was just right. It took approximately 2 hours to amass the entire gardens, but it surely did not... More

The gardens offered a beautiful and diverse experience to see in San Antonio. The various garden displays were well done, with a picturesque view of San Antonio from the lookout. The Conservatory was also very impressive.

Found this to be a very pleasant and well maintained horticultural park. Found the plants were mostly well marked as most of the plants are not found in Wisconsin. Enjoyed this park very much.
