Birthdays at the Garden

The San Antonio Botanical Garden’s birthday party package allows you and your guests to celebrate your child’s special day, Garden style. Your party package gives you and your guests access to the Botanical Garden during and after the party, until closing. Birthday party packages are designed for children ages 12 and under.

The new 2.5-acre Family Adventure Garden provides the perfect setting for hands-on, creative play and a one-of-a-kind birthday adventure. The Prickly Pear Pavilion transforms into party central while guests explore on their own, run, tumble, wade, and discover the unlimited, fun possibilities of nature play.

Birthday Party Locations

Indoor Options

Auld House

The Botanical Garden’s historic piñon pine log cabin is located along the Texas Hill Country Trail. With a large indoor space that includes AC/Heat, an outdoor covered patio, and bathrooms, this space feels rustic while not being without modern conveniences.

H-E-B Discovery Classrooms

One of two large indoor classrooms. Includes AC/Heat plus retractable wall to make inside space outdoor accessible.

Covered Outdoor*

Prickly Pear Pavilion

In the heart of the new Family Adventure Garden, use this as home base while your guests explore all the fun outdoor playscapes.

Education Tent

This outdoor, covered event tent is nestled in between the Children’s Vegetable Garden and the Cactus and Succulent Garden. It truly is a Botanical Garden party when guests are just steps away from delighting in the diversity of plant life that surrounds them.

*No guarantee of an indoor location should inclement weather arise.

The Botanical Garden reserves the right to change the location between these four sites.
