Seemed like a high cost to get in, but we had a wonderful time. It's large with different themed areas. Learned about different vegetation and got lots of steps . Highly recommend.

We have lived here for over 10 years and never knew about this place. We went on a Saturday morning around 11 am. We were really looking for something to pass the time with a 4 year old. This place hit the spot! Lots of different walking paths! We were here for about 3 hours and walked just under 3.5 miles. My personal favorite part was the Texas Native Trails. I was very interested in the native houses they have there. I felt like a lot of people were just passing them up and not really paying attention to them. After reading the house descriptions these are actually houses that were taken apart meticulously and transported to the Botanical Gardens. I thought it was amazing to see what the different types of homes were like and how they were constructed back in the day. Our granddaughter really enjoyed the Lake, the Overlook and Acequia. The lake has a lot of fish and turtles. If we had known we would have brought some old bread so she could have fed the fish. You can not bring outside drinks in. You can purchase bottled water their, and there are several refillable water stations along the way. We will definitely be recommending this place to friends and family when they visit.

San Antonio Botanical Garden is a lovely place to visit. There is a huge variety of plants and if you’re lucky, you’ll see a few animals too. The grounds are well kept and if I lived in San Antonio, I would visit frequently. It’s a great place to spend a few hours surrounded by nature.

I was so surprised at how many neat little things there was to do here. Since I'm a member of the Dallas Arboretum, I was able to get free reciprocal entry with my membership. There is a nice little cafe and shop as well as a garden shop. The trails are mostly paved and well taken care of so wandering the areas was pleasant. At the time of our visit, they had a Big Bug exhibit with giant works of art for photo-ops and scarecrows. We also found some playhouses and kid's activities along the trails including a stage with sitting area. On the lawns they had some various activities for kids (like hula-hoops). In the back of the garden they had historical cabins, giant furniture, and a giant chess set. Throughout the gardens there were a lot of nice areas for small groups and pavilions. I will definitely return next Spring to see all the beautiful flowers blooming. 14 year old - Enjoyed the chess set 10 year old - Enjoyed the giant chairs and the big bugs 5 year old - Enjoyed the giant chairs and the stage (with props)

Went for about three hours late afternoon, a vast space and such wonderful gardens and things to see. Highly recommend a visit not far from the city centre.
