Simply beautiful.

I can't think of prettier place to take a walk in San Antonio. I loved every part of it. Still I think I wouldn't recommend going with toddlers or babies.

I was searching TA for something quiet to do and this popped up. It's a cheap ($8) Uber from downtown and worth it. You can also take the #11 Via bus ... $1.30, no change given. I received reciprocal admission because I belong to another botanical garden, but the $10 would be well worth a nice afternoon. Quiet. Nicely maintained.... More

The only reason I didn't give it excellent was because it was not handicap friendly. To get to many places you had to access stairs, not ramps. Otherwise it would have been perfect.

When you are finally tired of dealing with the crowds of tourists on the Riverwalk and at The Alamo, take a break and travel a few minutes out of San Antonio's downtown area over to the Botanical Garden. It's a peaceful retreat from the bustle elsewhere in the city. Many different plant environments are represented, including the natural southwest Texas... More

The displays of plants native to different regions of Texas were great. I could have spent even more hours (if I had not been limited in my opportunity) strolling through leisurely and stopping to appreciate the beauty of God's created plants. The $10 price was very fair for the experience.

Well maintained gardens and conservatory. Plenty to see and take in. Quite a bit of walking so make sure you plan accordingly.

Very nice gardens full of every plant you have heard of and most that you have never seen. You can spend an hour or all day. Beautiful!

As members of the New York Botanical Gardens we enjoy going to gardens in other cities. What a very nice surprise these Gardens are magnificent mixing cacti, perennials as well as annuals. We wish we had more time to spend there. This is a don't miss spot in San Antonio!

Nicely done with a few old settlers home scattered about the gardens. One portion is divided into areas that reflect Texas native plants from the southern plains, etc. The orchid house is fantastic, as is the cacti house. The only part that was (slightly) disappointing was the Japanese garden and only because it was so small. I hope to come... More
