Take a Guided Tour of San Antonio's Stunning Gardens this January
The Japanese Tea Gardens in San Antonio are Open to the Public in the New Year
The Tea Gardens on North Saint Mary’s Street originally opened over one hundred years ago in 1915 by then city parks commissioner Ray Lambert. The former quarry has since become a local landmark, with the most recent renovation in 2007 costing a reported $1.6 million. The registered historic Texan landmark is opening for tours of both the gardens and its unique flora and fauna collection. The parks show cascading waterfalls alongside Koi fishes, but historical tours also inform you of the construction, maintenance, and preservation of this cultural icon. Tours are running from January 24th onward and should be booked in advance. Most guided trips include a visit to the Alamo and the nearby River Walk.
- The Japanese Tea Gardens contains a rare collection of botanical species and fish.
- A large pagoda is situated nearby to the cafe for stopping off to enjoy the scenery.
- You can purchase tickets for the Alamo, Tea Gardens, and River Walk can be purchased online.
