This is a very interesting and well presented concept for displaying the broad spectrum of plants from the region. The gardens and buildings are intriguing BUT winter is not the time to visit unless you want the place to yourself. Many plants had been cut back, little to nothing in bloom, but the exhibition houses for cacti, palm and succulents... More

I went with my husband and adult daughter. When we began to explore- there was not much color. The workers were busy planting pansies. They were teasing me about how we shouldn't have come here at this time of year. As we began to walk around - we found tangerine trees with edible fruit. My husband loved this. The green... More

My son married in the gardens. It's a beautiful venue for a wedding. We hosted the reception in the carriage house. Perfect setting. Perfect day.

I stopped at the Botanical Garden on the way to the airport one sunny day when we only had a little less than an hour (I wish we had closer to 2+ hours). The entrance fee was $8 which was very reasonable, and the grounds were in very good shape (minus some of the construction that I assume was expanding... More

I don't feel like I can give this a truly fair review since we saw it in December and I'm sure it is truly lovely in better weather. They have a nice gift shop and a little restaurant .& plenty of parking. The entry fee of 8.00 is very reasonable. I will say that we enjoyed the quiet and a... More

With plenty of diversity the garden has it all, a must-see for any botany geek or peaceful seeker. As a native of San Antonio I visit it frequently, I always feel like I leave the city. Take your time, you will learn a lot about the local plants, bring plenty of water (for those who fear heat prefer spring or... More

I absolutely love this place! You can go for a leisure walk on the grounds and see so many beautiful and unusual plants. The rose garden and lake is especially my favorite. After your walk there is a cute shop with some unusual gifts. Also Anne Marie's Carriage House Bistro is a wonderful place to eat. The staff there are... More

If you like gardening and you like your botanical, then this is for you. For us was a very good visit because we saw and took picture of many unusual plants that we do not have them in Europe.

The botanical gardens were much larger than I thought. Beautiful variety of plants, trees and succulents. Very nicely arranged. I really like the cactus walk
