Gorgeous visit on a gorgeous day! Tremendous variety of gardens and plant materials. Came to see Native Texas Trail plantings and found whole areas representing the Hill Country and south and east Texas. Happy to finally see Texas bluebonnets in person! The specialty exhibits in the conservatories were unique and not to be missed. Don't skip the Fern Grotto! Even the gift shop didn't disappoint. Wish I could have brought home some of the live plants for sale as they were a steal! Last shout out to the very helpful ticket seller who kindly showed me how to get around, made great suggestions, and generally set a fantastic mood for my visit - which did not disappoint!
We went in March before all the roses were in bloom yet we still had a wonderful time! The grounds are beautiful and the pavilions were magical. I would highly recommend spending some time at the botanical gardens, I could have stayed all day. Oh and there is an incredible Childrens area with water features to play in and lots of other things to explore. There is a little gift shop that has some grab and go snacks and drinks.
So beautiful! This botanical garden is very well kept by the staff. It has so much pretty flowers and plants. Very family friendly and plenty of room to have a picnic with kids and also have a play area. You can also take your dogs for a walk around most of the park.
Nice gardens with a lot of differing areas to include a lot of things for children. The grounds are well maintained and laid out. The garden areas are beautiful and there were many different sections to view all with a variety. Make sure to bring water as the gift shop sales expensive items only. There were a lot of restrooms throughout which made it nice as the area is fairly expansive. They were displaying a nice fall scheme and there were a few very nice picture spots. Parking was free but limited.
One of the best botanic gardens in the country! Used to live in San Antonio and we came here weekly to walk around throughout the year. It’s just constantly so beautiful here and a great place to escape to the beauty. Things are always changing too, with the weather of course, so there are new things to see. There are also great events they put on throughout the year, especially around the Holidays. Whenever I come back I make sure to stop here. You have to go and if you’re a local I highly recommend the annual pass. Thanks for everything SA Botanical Gardens!
