Wow. We were in the process of moving to San Antonio last Nov. and walked thru here to get out of hotel. We enjoyed the visit so much we joined and--after we drug our daughter's family thru they joined !

The grounds are very well kept and-considering the drought- in excellent shape. They have a really cool exhibit of different landscaping options for the local area thats really helpful. For touristas its a pleasant 2-3 hour stroll around a very beautiful place.

If you are in San Antonio and the weather is halfway decent--head on out. You will not be disappointed.

Maybe it was the time of the year, or the weather (it was a bit drizzly), but I really enjoyed the Botanic Garden. It was quiet, not a lot of people, so I could linger at the flowers and take as many pics as I wanted without disturbing others. It's not very big (at least not a lot of things in bloom in Feb), so it was very easy to walk. I probably spent 2 hours. If you're familiar witch Chicago's botanic garden, this isn't even close in size (much smaller!) so a great opportnuty to visit on a short trip and still feel like you saw everything

Not a lot of native stuff blooming right now but did enjoy the green houses. I can see where the Butterfly exhibit for children would be a lot of fun. I particularly liked the Kumamoto En (Japanese Garden). It was small but managed to capture the feel.

We loved the location and layout of the gardens but found very little in bloom and many items not planted yet for the season. The selection of offerings and potential offerings were good tho. March would be far better. Views from the gardens were nice also. They had a cafe, gift shop and several atriums to visit also.

Hill Country, Pineywoods, South Texas... cactus garden, formal garden. Great lunch spot in the Carriage House. But the Japanese Garden doesn't compare to the Japanese Tea Garden in Brackenridge Park.
