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.

Haven't been there in ages, and it appears they have made A LOT of improvements. It is beautiful! So many different themed areas, including a gorgeous East Texas pinewoods area. There's also a family adventure area with lots of fun things for the kids to play on/in. We loved it so much we got a family membership. My kids can't wait to come back and play, and I can't wait to come back and run those beautiful trails.
San Antonio has so much to offer that the Botanical Gardens are easy to overlook, but when the weather is nice it is a great way to spend an afternoon. The grounds are beautiful and the collections are impressive. And the food is surprisingly good, with several culinary specialists that create exciting menus themed around all thing botanical.
This place is AMAZING! We attended a Culinary Health Education for Families (CHEF) class there and Chef Dave even gave us a tour and lecture of the grounds. The vegetable and herb garden is spectacular and we were even allowed to each pick one fruit from the orange and lemon grove. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained with plenty of interest for every member of the family. We can't wait for our next visit!
Most of the grounds looked very rough-cut and they had an large area under construction . The indoor exhibits were by far the most healthy looking. All the cactus were amazing. We had the most fun looking for the Lego exhibits thoughtout the gardens.
We are part of the children's garden this season. Although the weather has been a challenge we are enjoying our Saturday mornings at the park. The leaders and volunteers are very supportive and helpful. One of my favorite things about the program is the sense of community. We all help each other and share our love and knowledge of growing plants.
