Japanese Tea Garden
What began as a quaint lily pond in one of San Antonio's first rock and cement quarries has today evolved into a full-fledged Japanese Tea Garden, complete with nature trails, event space, koi ponds, and a waterfall. When you enter, you will pass through a beautiful stone pagoda that acts as the start of the nature trail across the park.
The Tea House at the entrance serves fresh tea and finger foods and is a fine place to sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery. Take your time through the park as you pass by the Japanese flora, enjoy the tranquil view of the koi fish and turtles in the many ponds, and don't hesitate to take a seat on one of the garden benches or enjoy a family picnic on the grounds.
The Japanese Tea Garden has undergone many renovations over the past few months, with brand new facilities and improved ponds and waterfalls. The space is available for event rental, including parties, weddings, and graduations. The gardens and the tea house remain open all year round, so be sure to visit this oasis just outside of downtown San Antonio no matter what time if year you plan your visit.
