This is a serene place to visit on a Saturday morning. The glass house is filled with tropicals. Loved that all the plants are labeled. There is a cool demonstration of mini landscapes with xeriscape plants. Climb the tower and overlook the city.

Very nice gardens. We were there during Fiesta in San Antonio and they had lots of activities going on the day we were there. Definitely worth a stop while visiting SA.

The gardens were beautiful, the only reason not for a five was the Japanese Gardens were under renovation and the maps furnished were hard to follow.

After a long public transport ride there and a long walk to the ticket booth, I found myself in a maze of construction gates/screens that were so confusing. I ended up having lunch while sitting at a bar in front of a pillar with not-so-great...More
