San Antonio Botanical Garden

Established with the mission to continuously inspire visitors with the beauty and interconnectivity of all living things, the San Antonio Botanical Garden is an urban oasis. Since its official opening in May of 1980, the gardens have pushed the boundaries of interactive gardening with luscious flora, intensely beautiful galleries of natural art, and gardens that magnify the senses.

Every season you'll find something new. Some of the notable areas include the Lucile Halsell Conservatory, a large architectural wonder housing plants from around the world encircling an indoor courtyard. You can sit back and enjoy the warm tropical atmosphere filled with cocoa, coffee, and rubber trees from the Amazon or tour exhibits featuring dinosaur era cycad trees from the Carboniferous Age.

Formal and display gardens transform throughout the seasons but always include a Rose Garden, Sensory Garden, an Old Fashioned Garden, and Kumamoto En garden fashioned after a garden in Japan of the same name. Also visit the WaterSaver Garden to learn how to conserve water and garden in desert areas or low water areas such as those in Texas. The Texas Native Trail, also, is a wholly unique opportunity to follow the native flora and fauna of the Lone Star State and also visit several historic buildings along the trail.

Step back in history with the Auld House, an 1880s Texas family homestead made of piñon pine and thought to be the largest piñon pine cabin in the state. The cabin was moved to the Garden grounds and is surrounded by native Texas plants and wildflowers. You can also find other architectural history on the grounds like an East Texas log cabin, a South Texas adobe, and a house circa 1815 built by one of the earliest settlers of Texas.
