  • We just had a scout night at the Botanical Garden. It was amazing!! The rainy weather did not stop the activities because the staff was incredibly prepared, helpful and protected our safety. I was so amazed with the new areas of the garden and look forward to more fun times during dry weather. Thank you to all the staff my family had an awesome time.
  • I hadn't visited the botanical gardens since 2016 and it has changed so much for the better!! The kids adventure garden is like a mini splash pad with a small water fall, a creek, and fountains. The bathrooms are also super clean and air conditioned. We ended up converting our day pass to a membership for $75. Rosella had a limited menu for brunch, but we enjoyed it. The alcoholic drinks are well made and the food tastes better than it looks. The only thing is my daughter's bagel was burnt and my husband's eggs were overcooked. They don't have a kids menu on the weekend, but you can pick a few things of the sides menu to create a meal.
  • We’ve been members here for a few years now and it’s some of the best money I’ve spent. Firstly, the place is meticulously maintained. It’s evident the staff actually care about the place. Secondly, the new wing is awesome. Very modern to the point it feels more like walking in an art museum. Thirdly, if you have kids, this is a no brainer. They have a very well done and extensive family garden for young kids (below twelve probably) and they’re one of the few family places open at 9am. If you’ve ever lived a San Antonio summer, you realize that by noon you are probably inside the rest of the day :-)
  • Great place to enjoy beautiful plants and flowers. Has nice paths to walk on. It has other nice structures to look at too. If you get the season pass, they have members only specials sometimes, where you can view new stuff before the public. It is a great place for photographers and painters too.
  • Really liked this place. I liked looking at all the flowers. They have some historical cabins too really great. I did notice allot of people go here for wedding and engagement pictures. I did not know that until I got there.
