Early Spring was still beautiful

Probably not a peak season to see all this place has to offer. Large area under construction separate of the grounds. Loved the walk and scenery. Great escape from the city.

My son and I were looking for something to do that didn't involve electronics or spending a lot of money. Out experience at the Gardens was very pleasant! There was so much to see and do! And even though it was a busy day for the gardens, it was crowded. The set up allows for everyone to move around, see... More

Visiting the botanical garden was a nice surprise...I didn't have high expectations and was really surprised to see all of the exhibits. Didn't care for the restaurant..

This is an inexpensive activity ($10/person) and was enjoyable on a hot day. The walk around the pond in the back of the gardens was a respite from the heat. It's not a vast garden, but was certainly done well.

We had a beautiful day at the garden. It is largely outdoors and shows off the massive variety of plants that are grown in Texas. Wonderfully put together. The grounds are interesting and expansive. They are adding several acres of land right now too. There was a great list of classes and activities available. Everything from Yoga in the Garden... More

Love going to SABOT with my children! Each area is distinct. You can find a perfect spot to sit down and enjoy a picnic lunch on a nice day. The piney woods area literally takes you to another world. You can now buy food at the entrance and feed the ducks. There is quite a bit of construction going on... More

The Botanical Gardens is more than plants, it's an experience where nature blends with architecture.

I've been to many elaborate gardens from Galveston to Queenstown NZ, and this one definitely competes easily. There are so many vignettes of design examined from modern landscape design to genuine Texas pioneer cabins relocated to these gardens. The 🌹 gardens were not blooming but having lived in Austin and visiting there in a regular, I can envision how beautiful... More

Beautiful surroundings, fun kids' activities, great photo spot and helpful staff make this a place to visit regularly. Reciprocal membership with Gardens across the country is convenient for travelers.

Loved, loved, loved. Even though we were here near the end of Feb. there were still tons and tons of flowers out. Loved the layout of the gardens. Just a perfect way to spend some time wondering through all the flora and fauna. Not to be missed by people that love plants
