So beautiful, and a great way to learn about all of the wildlife in Texas. If you want to have a more leisurely day, it’s a beautiful spot for a picnic.

This has become my favorite place in the world. Worth buying the membership for sure! Not challenging as a walk, but beautiful, serene, and entertaining. Running here offers slight grades, stairs, ramps, multiple surfaces, etc that offer variety and varying difficulty. Come visit my personal favorite city oasis.

It's different from what I usually do but it was a nice educational experience. I think it's best for people who wants to learn more about gardening or kids who have interest in plants. I enjoyed my time reading with the sound of birds and the dancing trees though. Overall it was really nice.

Beautiful walk, very relaxing. The trail is small and even though there was a lot of people, no one really get in you to distract you from the trail. You need to pay to get in but it is worth it.

The botanical gardens are a beautiful oasis. The labeling of flowers, trees, and plants make it interesting and is good for any age group. I especially enjoyed Koi pond and the Tropical Center. There are several historic sites to include homes that have been moved there years ago. The max price to get in is $10 per person for an adult, military is $8. They have a gift shop in a place to eat in there. Overall a great short excursion that is not difficult.

The San Antonio Botanical Gardens are a great place to get away from the noise of the city and walk through a variety of manicured gardens, ponds, and even historic dwellings. On this visit, the Gardens had a special display of life-sized dinosaur models. There is a lot of wildlife to see and photograph while you're there as well.

First to Review

This was a very nice section of our Memorial Day Hike. We took our Boys Scout troop out for a 4-5 mile hike across Brackenridge Park. The Botanical Gardens was a section of this hike. It was a great spot for us to take a break in the shade and let the boys get a drink of water and give them a little bit of History about the Botanical Gardens. This area has gone through some major renovations and it is still underway. It is certainly worth the trip if you are in the area.
