SA Botanical Garden has recently undergone renovations that have improved it immensely. Great interactive area for children, demonstration area for cooking with fresh veggies, beautiful trails and gardens. A great family destination.

Reasonable entry fee. I was totally amazed at the size of this place and the variety of flora it has. The gardens are amazing. Highly recommend this place. Easy to park. Spent half the day there.

The various gardens are amazing. It was very hot but bathrooms and water are available throughout the grounds. There is a beautiful shaded lake on the back end of the property. The kids garden is a popular place for kids to splash in the water.

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.
