San Antonio Botanical Garden - Review

Conceived in 1940 and opened in 1980, the Garden is one of San Antonio’s more low key attraction. It provides a serene respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. It has three main areas: The Texas Native Plains (which contain plants from three distinct geological areas of Texas), the Lucille Hasbell Conservatory (which has a sunken courtyard, a tropical lagoon, plants of all kinds from desert and forested regions – with each particular group in it’s own climate controlled cell), and the actual formal gardens that serve as a terrific display area, this has the Rose Garden, the Old Fashioned Garden, the Sensory Garden, the Kumamoto En Garden (gifted by sister city Kumamoto in Japan), the Sacred Garden, the Shade Garden, Gertie’s Garden and the Ornamental Grass Garden. Oh yes, this place is just bursting with goodies to surprise you. The special exhibits can get pretty freaky. There’s a little gift shop worth checking out and an excellent restaurant.

  • HUGE! I couldn't get through it in a day. Luckily that some areas, like the kids discovery section that had a general summary garden of plants and flowers of what was in the entire garden in a smaller area. I was hoping to see more flowers than plants. They had many flowers, though. I was also hoping for tons more variety in the flowers, but again, it's a huge park, so I probably missed something. That said, it was a great experience, the staff were very friendly and helpful, too!

  • Wonderful place for a family trip. I don't think I can say enough great things about the gardens. Food and drinks are allowed, and it is a beautiful place for a picnic. The new family centers are wonderful. Clean and well-maintained paths and buildings. Really appreciate the water bottle refill stations at the water fountains! If you live in the area, a membership is worth it. The special events are fun, such as Brews and Blooms, and there are several member-only events. The cafe is also great and a popular spot for lunch. You can access it directly without entrance to the garden, and it is close to Fort Sam.

  • We visited the San Antonio Botanical Gardens the other day and had a great time. The gardens are nicely maintained and contain an impressive variety of plant specimens from around the world. It was especially interesting walking through the different greenhouses in the conservatory. There were a number of families visiting on the Sunday we went. There is a nice area for small children to play in the water or on the lawns, as well as activity/learning areas. The only improvements I would recommend would be to provide additional shaded areas in the back of the park since Texas summer can be quite hot. We would have spent more time in the park had there been areas to sit and relax under a tree or canopy. Construction was underway near the entrance, so we would like to return after the expansion is complete.

  • This was by far one of my favorite outings in San Antonio. The San Antonio Botanical Gardens is a fantastic place for kids, families, couples, or anyone with curiosity. The Botanical Gardens is a bevy of learning and information coupled with healthy, outdoor fun. The staff were all very friendly and informed about the various plant species. My personal favorite section is the edible plants greenhouse. I learned a lot about where certain spices and food come from and grow, as well as how to identify them. If you're looking for a cheap and healthy outing, thus is it! Just be mindful about visiting in the summer, (it's HOT) as a lot of the garden is outdoors.

  • Definitely not worth $51. That’s a bit outrageous.. for looking at flowers, greenery and plants. We like the garden area. The veggies grown should be picked and donated instead of not being picked and used. The kids enjoyed all the different color plants and all the fountains. Wish the kid discovery area was more enter active and more things to do. The ponds could of actually had fish in them.. probably won’t be a place we go back to.
